Photographs of glacial ice are displayed on pedestals and frames formed from ice, with carved jagged edges that highlight the amazing and varied shapes of the glacier ice depicted.
Viewers see ancient glaciers through new ice as millennia is condensed into one object, and consider the texture, beauty, and variety of the glacier ice, the thousands of years it takes to be created, and its importance in nature.
This work creates a space to contemplate humanity's complicated, troubled, but perhaps hopeful relationship with nature. With internal lights, the ice sculptures become beacons slowly melting throughout the night, creating a visual metaphor linked to global warming, the importance of water, and notions of time and changeability.
Evan Steingarten is a photographer who has documented glacier melting in Kluane National Park, and Jason van Horne is a sculptor working with ice.
