Center for Maine Contemporary Art
2012 CMCA Biennial

I was invited to create a site-responsive installation at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art. I had just visited the glaciers of El Calafate, Argentina. While hiking there on the cusp of their winter, I was struck by the deep inner tones of blue in the glaciers, their immense size and the notion that they were living entities that were continually changing. As these glaciers continue their melt, I feel lucky to have witnessed them, if only for a moment. In Maine at the CMCA, i wanted to re-create the sense of envelopment, color and quality of the light I experienced in the Southern Hemisphere.
