This is a collaborative ice installation created by Heather Hesterman and Sarah Tomasetti. These ice rocks were originally sourced from basalt rocks from the Merri Creek area, with this particular daily set of ice a chromatic documentation of Lake Baikal, Siberia. Lake Baikal is the largest freshwater lake by volume in the world. The ice gradually drips and collects in a reservoir, the run-off flowing via a metal channel and through a hole in the gallery wall to drip abjectly onto the footpath. We would like to thank Stuart Purves, the director of Australian Galleries who has supported this project all the way.
