Avalanche

Singaporean artist Dawn Ng’s work deals with time, memory, and the ephemeral. For Avalanche, she crafted pigmented blocks of ice, then filmed them slowly melting away.

Using time lapse, Ng compressed hours of real time into minutes of screen time. But, even sped up, the effect remains meditative. Manipulating our sense of space and time, she fast tracks glacial decay while evoking calming waterfalls and collapsing ice shelves.
