Refuge Series: notes
The Refuge Series continues the decade long theme of ice loss. The recurring motif is of a square or “box”. This motif represents a form of footprint or fingerprint of our existence on the planet, from architecture to technology. Refuge exists in many guises. These images are meant to be seductive, resonant, and engaging. They are intended to make you feel and think. Thank you for looking.
A poem by Marilyn Kemppainen
The disappearance of ice -
The sound of a titanic mea culpa
Enormous mass falls into the sea.
The disappearance of me.
