THE MELTING GLACIERS
The melting glaciers gleam bright in the centre of the picture, dividing the dark in two, creating structure and opening up new spaces, thereby revealing their formative powers. The glaciers appear enormous, even threatening, yet at the same time finite. The global warming is displacing them, they melt and flow away. Their power and fragility mirror our own resilience and vulnerability. The glaciers urge us to change our way of life, to leave nature space for its miracles and to halt the flow of our own self-destruction.
