An aerial view of Skei?ar?, a glacial river in Iceland rendered in an imagined colour scheme, this piece embodies flow and the inevitability of change. The transformation of glacier ice into river symbolizes cyclical and ongoing renewal, as new energy rushes in to fill space where it has been displaced. As the water is replaced by the new, the landscape is transformed by constant motion and force. A snapshot of a place that contains flow and movement, this segment of the river will never hold the same water particles again, constantly renewed.
