40 Minutes of a melting ice cube


A screenprint documenting one melting ice cube in a room temperature of 25°c shot every minute during 40 minutes time. When observed closely, we will see the ice slowly change. All the liquid that once freezed inside start to move, bubbles floating upward. The object that seemes dry at first is gradually self-coating and transforming into shiny liquid. This print is achieved by printing the highlight parts of the ice with white ink to emphasize the changing state of matter. As in reality, before noticing anything, the ice was already gone.
