Typography Made Out Of Ice



You may remember Stacy mentioning Nicole Dextra's ice typography series in her May article about a dress made out of yucca plants. (link). Well, now you can take a look for yourself at Nicole's bold statement-typography made out of solid ice, some letters standing over eight feet tall, spelling out thought provoking words that naturally return to the earth over time due to changing climate temperature.

Here's what Nicole has to say about the project:

The Ice Typography series consists of three-dimensional words fabricated in ice placed outdoors that speak to how the viewer’s gaze frames and informs the landscape. The installations have varied from 8-foot high ice letters on the Yukon River to 18-inch high letters set in downtown Toronto. When the ice texts are installed on site, the temperature determines how long it will take for them to change state from solid to liquid. This phase of transition becomes symbolic of the interconnectedness of language and culture to the land as they are affected by time and by a constant shifting and transforming nature.

Now that's what I call environmental art!
