Slow Violence

2018

 

Slow Violence is a site-responsive intervention in which a glacier documents its own extinction.

By strategically placing blue-tinted sheets of paper underneath melting areas of the glacier, the ice mapped its slow but steady disappearance. The unstopping, yet constant dripping of meltwater slowly washed away the blue pigment; creating images that are not only made by the agency of the glacier in itself, but which contain its own history.
