Antarctic Ice Paintings
Xavier Cortada, recipient of a 2006-2007 National Science Foundation Antarctic Artists and Writers fellowship, traveled to Antarctica to implement a series of projects and installations. While there, the Miami artist created “ice paintings” by melting the very ice that threatens to cause sea levels to rise globally. The artist titled the works on paper by randomly selecting the names of geographic features from a map of the continent that inspired their creation.
