    2008

    Based on a series of observations of the azure sky above Franz Joseph Glacier in New Zealand, this installation that not only replicates the physical activities of this natural phenomenon, but also produces a pure monochrome painting the color of the sky. The water in the pool is dyed to precisely match the color of the sky and then the overflow from the pool is frozen into ice cubes that are deposited into the chute, which in turn melt into the pool, creating a closed system of melting and freezing blue water. Installation at RISD museum of Art, Providence, RI. Photography by Erik Gould.
