Stasis / Strata (2011-2012)

Installation (water)

Rather than dominating the environment and any emergent theme with its structure and colour, as did the previous Grid experiments, the threaded grid and pigment were abandoned.  It was during this time that a new technique arose, allowing the production of thin self-supporting structures of ice.

The result was a new form of living structure, intricate lacy patterns that became even more delicate as they were sublimated in the winter environment.  Novel qualities of the material became apparent such as the surprising flexibility of ice, and its ability to capture and redirect light.
