Walks along the edge of glaciers - at the top and bottom of the globe -
performed to witness signs of global warming. Juxtaposed with my walks and
a sound score of evolving glacial dynamics composed by Reese Williams,
are cautionary texts serving as a counterpoint to the sheer beauty
of these places- reminders of the fragility of massive glaciers
during our current era of accelerating climatic changes.

"Argentine researchers warned that Le Martial Glacier will
disappear in 2040- by 2050 'nothing' will remain of it."
