‘Splitting, Calving, Melting’ was created by placing ice directly onto the scanning bed of the risograph printer and making an image of its fluid transient state. The print relates to Rowan’s wider practice in which she creates interconnecting systems that speculate on the origins and many shifting states of water. The print instils some of the more ephemeral elements of her work into a tangible object and continues her exploration into the relationships between fluidity, ephemerality, geology and technology.
