Ice Form takes inspiration from the freezing process as it occurs in the natural world. This natural phenomenon can create magnificent forms and patterns such as icicles, ice caves and frozen waterfalls. This installation was produced through multiple layers of hand cut and folded paper, which builds up to form the 3D structure. A layering process which has a connection to the creation of the ice structures seen in nature, which are often formed from layers of melted and frozen water.
Ice Form was commissioned by The Djanogly Gallery, Nottingham.
