Arctic Arts Jokullsarlon- For good or ill, change is a constant. Environmentally speaking, climate change appears as a rapid course of kinetic evolution. As the human existence is wrapped in questions both profound and complex regarding this change, one question that surfaces for me as an artist is: What does profound kinetic evolution look like? What is the visual response to these changes in our environment?
The glacial lagoon of Jokullsarlon Iceland provided an excellent framework of change during my time in in the Arctic. “Icebergs in the Midnight Sun” was shot shortly after the summer solstice in early July. The golden light backlighting of the turquoise iridescent ice made for a dramatic encapsulation of change.
