GLACIER SURFACE, ICELAND

195DKK595DKK

DECRIPTION:

The “Glacier Surface“landscape is a near close-up to the surface of the Vatnajökull glacier in Iceland. The landscape describes the thousands of hues in the ice and the lines appearing in it when it moves and stretches. White ice is white because it contains a lot of air bubbles, whereas blue ice is densely compressed glacial ice where all white air bubbles are squeezed out. Water and glacial ice appears blue because pure water molecules absorbs all other colours than the blue one.
The landscape is one among a handful that give assosciations to something known in an entirely different scale. Apart from the colour, this might as well have been a macro photo of an old women’s hand or the skin of an elephant. It gives associations to the elements in nature that repeats itself in unknown numbers of which we human species can relate to the ones closest to us in scale.

ABOUT THE PROJECT:

“Geosperical Landscapes” is a landscape project by Wild Things where planet Earth is viewed through the eyes of a satellite. The images show the impact human kind has on the landscapes surrounding us as well as the impact landscapes have on us. The landscapes also serve as a time capsule of how the ever-changing landscape and human structures looked at this time in history.
