Red Ice - White Ice, 2008 / 2009.
Red Ice-White Ice is a series made at night whilst circling around icebergs in a small inflatable boat off the north west coast of Greenland in sub zero temperatures.
The photographs were made using red or white flash to reflect the temperature changes taking place in this fragile wilderness.
Wolfgang Paalen, Untitled (automatic drawing), circa 1950
Austrian surrealist Wolfgang Paalen is one of the great innovators of modern art. He invented the technique of fumage (painting with smoke), incorporated cutting-edge scientific theories and the forms of indigenous American art into the visual dialogue of his time, powerfully influenced American postwar painters, and edited one of the most influential art journals of the 20th century (Dyn).

I wish there was some sort of blanket you could cover yourself with but it didn’t make you warm it just provided the sensation of being covered because some nights it’s just too hot for a blanket but I need something covering me so it’s a choice between boiling to death or being completely vulnerable to monsters
