Signatures

The history of an iceberg is etched deeply into its surface. Each iceberg is shaped by the signature of the wind above and the pattern of the ocean currents below. Like the parts of a jigsaw, icebergs offer a clue to the place they occupied in the glacier which calved them. In making this work I came to see icebergs as memories, they encapsulated glacial ideas and a record of the elements that would ultimately destroy them.
