The Ice Breathes

The Ice Breathes – Moving Image from digital photographs | 3min 37sec | 2017 The ice transforms from inanimate to animate for those who can feel the earth as a living entity. I felt the Anima Mundi of the earth. Antarctica is a continent which to the best of our knowledge no indigenous peoples called as their home; yet if they had, I am certain they too would have connected with the energy of the living earth as I did; and represented this connection through totems, markings, body paint and talismans; as they have done in traditional cultures across the globe for millennia. This series of images in this moving image piece expresses the visible representing the invisible. It is the expression of the transformation of my perception from the known of what is tangible, to what is intangible – the anima mundi; yet for me deeply visceral. I felt the ice breathe.
