Icewaves Print

Icewaves print     2014

Digital print on archival rag paper from the original drawing which was hand drawn in pencil and ink over a detail of an echogram from flight G23 over East Antarctica.

Echograms are made by radar, beamed from the undersides of small aircraft, down through 4 Km. of Antarctic Ice to the land beneath, and bounced back up into a computer, a similar technology to ultrasound imaging of our bodies. The image in the computer is a cross section of the ice and landmass beneath the flight of the aircraft. The image is made by sound but the result reminded me of Chinese landscape painting.
