ICE (H20) - Crystal
Tiny crystals lie on an Antarctic beach, deposited by the tides, blown into shape by the katabatic winds, waves lick and gnaw at ice-bergs creating astounding shapes and forms. The result are abstract shapes and patterns, ephemeral sculptures created by the elements.
But the eerie beauty of these wondrous shapes and forms created by the melting ice and frozen in time by her camera are illusory - it is death that we are looking at - , the final moments of an element (H20) in transformation, its regression from a solid to a liquid state.
Jasmine Rossi’s images present the beginning of a catastrophe. Like the perfect calm before a hurricane, or the glorious light illuminating the sky before a massive storm, she is up against arace with time, as these fantastic formations are steadily disintegrating in front of her very eyes.
