Our ice caps are melting, accelerating global warming. As the ice melts new landscapes, new landforms are created. Scientists say that more light is absorbed onto the earth’s surface as part of this process.
A series of experimental works exploring the alchemy that is water, paper and light mimicking climate change impacts on polar icecaps. Experimentation, cause and effect and chance are made visible in the work, using traditional darkroom processes. Emilio explores the wonder of light and water and through repetition highlight how our actions or lack of actions lead to catastrophic climate change.
