Glacier Crack Frottage, DetailPlanetary Intimacies – Owning the Fractues

Glacier Crack Frottage.
Glacier Fracture Frottage

My series of glacier crack frottages is an artistic exploration of something that will soon be gone. The changing shape of the cracks draws boundaries between something that is lost and something that is new, something that is just emerging, while we are inextricably caught in between.
