Words from the artist:
Transformative Adaptation, 2020
My invitation to this show Resilience was opportune because I had already been working with resilience as a theme. The form of this installation piece was already unfolding and then took unexpected turns as the world responded to the pandemic. I realized that I, along with billions of others, was suddenly part of a profound process of transformation, adaptation and ultimately resilience.
The melting and collapse of ice shelves on the western Antarctica Peninsula and in the Arctic captivated my attention and curiosity several years ago. It all began with my reading about, viewing and collecting NASA images of drastically impacted areas of melting and collapsing ice shelves. As evidence of an unstable climate and changing planet, the ice patterns retain.
