PHOTO 2024 | Lingam.K | Melting icescape / black landscapes

1 Mar 2024 – 26 May 2024

Global warming is universal, and melting icescapes are one of the most visual indicators. As humans continue extractive and consumerist industries, our behaviours permanently affect the landscape, resulting in significant ecological impact – leaving an ineradicable ‘human signature’. Melting icescapes/black landscapes is a response to the glacial melt due to climate change. Using the alternative photographic processes of salt printing, the project captures the impending ecological collapse and encourages reflection on our relationship and impact on the landscape. It visually articulates the passing of time through the fading of the salt print and the effects of climate change on glacial landscapes.
