Videos: I am juxtaposing my drawing practice with melting, permafrost, and iceberg images. I want to see how drawing with charcoal can interact with the seemingly majestic landscapes of Antarctica and Iceland. The melting permafrost, the melting glaciers, are befalling as I am working in my studio. The slow phenomenon occurring on huge landmasses is happening very far away from me on almost completely inhabited lands; this is an hyperobject in need of attention.
