"Supraglacial Lake", 2022, woven bead mosaic on a thrifted blue bowl.
I heard yesterday that a supraglacial lake in India broke through its ice dam and thundered down the mountain taking out a bridge and two power stations. I discovered that this event happened a couple of days prior to me making this video. I would have gotten chills but I'm scientifically literate and the more scientifically literate you are the better you get as a Prophet of Doom. The Earth is warming. Ice melts. Basic cause and effect. Sadly, it's easy to predict. I'm making art documenting it and trying to cope emotionally.
