Collection 02 /// Impermanence /// Land Art

Land art installation reflecting on the illusion of stability.

Life is fragile with the illusion of security. Impermanence is a temporary performance structure that visualizes these themes. The four walls are made of ice and a fire was built in the middle to slowly burn it down.

The location and materials were chosen to bring meaning to the theme. The walls of ice are protecting the surrounding grass prairie from the fire within the ice house, but the ice house is slowly melting away lessening its protection.

The four walls were made from molds and frozen overnight in the landscape. After freezing, the walls were tilted up and the weight of the walls leaning on each other provided the support.
