Ice

Ice is a series of videos, and a work-in-progress. This work is researched further every winter — a process which has been ongoing since 2011.

The work is a series of one-hour-long, two-channel video installations. These two matching videos are shot in two parallel single simultaneous live takes, recording a winter sunset from opposite sides of the same river.

In these videos, the sound of ice moving on the surface of the river is audible, as the image itself fades from day to night over the course of the hour. Two figures are visible on screen, witnessing the process unfold.

The next shoot for Ice is anticipated to take place in January 2022.
