Ice Typography by Nicole Dextras

Even this coolest winter in European history has its pluses if you are a creative head. For Canadian environmental artist Nicole Dextras a severe weather is just another challenge to create massive ice messages to the human being or penguins.

When the ice texts are installed on site, the temperature determines how long it will take for them to change state from solid to liquid. This phase of transition becomes symbolic of the interconnectedness of language and culture to the land as they are affected by time and by a constant shifting and transforming nature.
