Transient Shelter 

Banff  / Canadá - 2006

La construcción de hielo es un pequeño refugio de paso en el bosque; realizado  con agua, previamente coloreada y congelada en moldes expuestos a  las temperaturas bajas de la intemperie.

La materialidad de la pieza implica su temporalidad. Durante el invierno, varias personas visitan el sitio. Con la llegada de la primavera, la pieza se derrite hasta desaparecer.

Transient Shelter 

Banff  / Canada - 2006

The ice construction is a small transient shelter set in a pleasant part of the woods. It is made from blocks of frozen coloured water, frozen previously in moulds that were exposed to very low temperatures in the wood.

The temporary nature of the piece is implicit in the material it is made from. During the winter people visited the site. When spring came the piece began to melt until disappeared.
