Refuge Series: notes
The Refuge Series continues the decade long theme of ice loss. The recurring motif is of a square or “box”, presented in portrait terms, each as stand alone individuals. This motif represents a kind of footprint or fingerprint of our existence on the planet, from architecture to technology. Refuge takes form in many guises. These images are meant to be seductive, resonant, and engaging. 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.
