Ice flow

About the theme of "ice flow"

I created these 10 abstract maps inspired by the imperceptible movements of glaciers using blue acrylic paint and black tape on paper.

In my artistic interpretation, I aim to capture the dynamic and fluid nature
of glaciers, which are immense masses of ice that slowly move over land,
shaping the landscape over time.

The blue acrylic paint represents the glaciers' icy hues. At the same time, the black color tape is strategically applied to depict the various types of flow, including internal deformation, rotational, extensional, and basal sliding.

Through the interplay of blue acrylic paint and black color tape, I seek to convey the intricate patterns and movements found within glaciers.

Each strip of tape represents a different aspect of glacial flow, from the slow internal deformation to the more rapid basal sliding. 

By layering and blending colors and shapes, I aim to evoke a sense of awe and wonder inspired by these natural phenomena, inviting viewers to contemplate the beauty and power of glaciers as they reshape the land around them.  

As viewers engage with this abstract map, they are invited to explore the hidden complexities of glacial movement and how it shapes our world.

Through the visual representation of glaciers as rivers of ice, I aim to evoke
a sense of reverence for the natural forces that shape our planet.

This series serves as a reminder of the delicate balance between human activity and the natural world, encouraging viewers to reflect on their relationship with the environment and the importance of conservation
and stewardship.
