Full of contradictions, ice is both fragile and destructive; to be frozen is to stand completely still, yet ice is in a constant state of change, expanding and contracting in a complex meteorological network. Weather rendered material, it has the capacity to heighten and alter our sensory perceptions while transforming entire landscapes.

Using a personal collection of photo negatives, acetate and giclée
 prints, cyanotypes and textured papers, these elements were brought together to form mixed media analogue collages to illustrate an A to Z of ice and its studies.

Field recordings made in the Norwegian arctic archipelago of Svalbard were used alongside photographs as reference material to interpret the phenomena of ice and the language that surrounds it.
