MELTING REFLECTIONS

Visualization of an environmental concern

Material: Water, steel, halogen light bulb, silicone, plaster.  

Stockholm 2018

We have it hard to grasp the impact of climate change, this light installation is an experiment to visualize raising water levels in a subtle and poetic way. 

A melting ice berg slowly melts and drips into a big glass bowl. While the amount of drips increases the reflections of the water in the celling gets getting bigger and bigger. Suddenly the celling is covered and it feels like you are sitting under the surface.
