Exhibition View, Jökulsárlón I and Jökulsárlón II
Jökulsárlón I and II are series of photograms created by exposing glacial ice on photographic paper. The process was repeated on sheets of paper until the piece of ice has completely disappeared.
Glacial ice is snow that has been exposed to extreme pressure under a very long time and eventually crystallised. The detailed image is created by light rays that are bent by the prisms inside the ice. The captured image is rather a trace of the process than a picture of the ice. The ice collected from the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon is older than any of the technology that made the pictures possible.
BBC-29.03 is a photographic diptych depicting the live broadcast of triggering of the Article 50.
