On thin ice, 2017
Inkjet print mounted to broken glass panel that has been glued back together with waterproof glue, protective mylar
In collaboration with Monisha Sugla, who provided the photographs of Antarctica.
Viewers step on this piece to experience stepping on thin ice. The broken glass continues to break further, causing sounds of fragility, danger. The viewer looks ahead of them to see more uncertainty, as the all the ice in front of them in the photograph is collapsing, leaving them with uncertainty and awareness of the larger problem. This is to portray an actual existing problem in the world with the lightness of a common saying/phrase, but also acts as a metaphor for approaching problems and issues in our own lives, often when we have already past the point of return.
