This event has ended.

In recent years, Tom Epperson, an American photographer based in the Philippines, has been experimenting with the properties of ice, an unusual medium which is the inspiration behind this new photographic series. While watching a documentary about the possibility of a future Ice Age, Epperson began to wonder what would happen if another Ice Age were to begin this year. What objects from our civilization would the next generation find in the ice?

The title of the exhibition refers to the temperature, -12˚C, of the industrial freezer where Epperson freezes various objects in large blocks of ice, some weighing up to 80 pounds. Before photographing, he transports the blocks to his studio, where he manipulates the ice using heat and carving tools to achieve the desired effect. He then experiments with lighting to highlight the refracting properties of the ice.
