This piece was produced for a moving image exhibition curated by Annemarie Kohn for Artspace at the Adelaide Festival Centre. It was projected very large onto a screen that could be seen from inside the gallery by day and through the gallery window by night. It is a montage of two separate timelapse captures. The foreground is a timelapse of a large block of ice melting (this was shot in the studio against a green screen). The background is a 12-hour time-lapse of an old pumping station at the Dry Creek Salt Facility in Adelaide, which uses solar evaporation processes to produce it's salt.
I was interested in the idea that as the solar energy builds across a day it melts the block and ice to reveal the landscape.
The montage was edited by David Ngo (The cutting Room). There is no soundtrack as it was designed to be viewed in a busy gallery environment.
