Ice Frame II is based off of 3D scan data that I captured from melting icebergs in Valdez, Alaska. The triangulated geometry relates to a computer's interpretation of the melting icebergs. The piece is installed in shallow water to create a reflection of what once was by mimicking the imagery of a full iceberg.

Created during residency with the Marpha Foundation in Marpha, Nepal. Capturing the power of the wind by using sunlight to map shadows over various stones.
3D Scanning Impermanence
As a 2017 Windgate Fellowship recipient from the Center for Craft, Creativity, and Design, I am actively pursuing work for the fellowship through July 2018.
Applying new technologies alongside craft processes, I will travel to Alaska to take 3D scans of glaciers and icebergs. The 3D scans will create a permanent representation of the melting forms. The scans will be 3D wax-printed and cast in glass in addition to the exploration of other material presentations of the data. Glass casting workshops at Corning Studio in Corning, NY and at Pratt Art Center in Seattle will allow me to learn the process. The Windgate Fellowship will enforce the experimentation of digital and craft processes, and the work created will be exhibited as a solo show in 2018.
These are selected images and videos of the process and 3D scans that are being applied in my recent work.
