TEMPORARY GROUND contrasts photographs of a continually changing Polar landscape with photogram prints: camera-less images made directly from receding glacier ice, exposing abstract and familiar patterning found within the ice itself. The images include landscape and underwater photographs of glaciers and icebergs captured in Svalbard, Norway as well as photograms made on-site in Alaska with melting glacier-ice gathered from Prince William sound and printed in a temporary darkroom. The work considers an impacted planet, a collective history the glacier ice holds, and the sense of connection/disconnection we have with the world we inhabit.
