- ICE - Green
ICE (H20) - GREEN.
At first glance, the emerald green sculpture appears to have been artificially placed into the winter landscape. Transparent, iridescent, illuminated by an eerie light from within, it seems to have been chiselled in glass, yet its surface is strangely silky and smooth, like some form of jelly.
Rossi does not use any type of tools to carve these wondrous shapes nor does she digitally manipulate her images. What we see are “ephemeral sculptures” frozen in timeby her lens - the very last remnants of thousand-year-old ice, expelled from the innermost core of anancient glacier that is now melting away.
The world, as it has been for millennia, is changing, and Rossi has chosen photography as a medium to stir our conscience and make usreflect on the dire question of the future of our planet.
Her images are historical snapshots, conscious compositions created with a sense of urgency, aware that she is up against a race with time, as these fantastic formations are steadily disintegrating infront of her very eyes.
ICE (H20) is an ongoing project that portrays the effects of GLOBAL WARMING.The colors of Rossi’s images symbolise different stages and aspects in the cycle of destruction:
GREEN ICE is extremely rare. Like blue ice it is very old and dates back from a time when the planet was still pristine. Green ice includes microscopic algae and is a metaphor for the delicate composition of the ocean’s waters and the balance of the elements on the planet.
