Time Present (work in progress). 2008. digital C-Print, engraved glass, 86 x 108 cm, aluminum frame.

The work Time Present is a contemplation of the relationship of an individual and/or a community to the overwhelming and at times abstract phenomena of Global Warming. In the summer of 2008 large pieces of ice broke off a Greenland glacier and floated into Frobisher Bay. The photographs show the icebergs during low tide, sitting at the shores of Iqaluit the capital of Nunavut. The work creates a visual and textual encounter, that places the effects of global warming within concrete bodies, that of an iceberg, a person, a community responding poetically, politically, and socially to the changing environment.
