Melting World

Story of the ImageThis composite piece defies time and space. It brings together a walkway in the Harpa performing arts building in Reykjavik, Iceland, and the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon located 379 km away. The art speaks to the urgent need for addressing climate change—Iceland is ground zero—lest we all become trapped in a melting world.

This “view portal” that frames the image is a photograph of the ornate rim from the headlight of 1963 Chrysler Turbine automobile. I digitally removed the glass and use the rim to frame still life compositions and landscape scenes. The projections resemble the tick marks on an analog clock or meter and provide graphic tension with whatever subject I’m spotlighting in the headlamp.
