As I embark on the second and final year of my MA I am beginning to explore the process of freezing combined with the producion of natural plant pigment. The recent cold weather has generated some beautiful ice patterns and highly visual textural surfaces. Water as a frozen medium can produce solid forms but remains a fragile and unstable material due to its reliance on a constant freezing temperature.
The frigility and uncertainty of liquid when frozen presents me with the opportunity to engage with a material that ultimately changes when thawed. The unpredictability and tension arrising from working with permantly changing material presents me with challenges but also some exciting possibilities!
