  1. This image really intrigues me because I don’t really understand what its about. This could plainly be about music, or about how records are fading into the past. But I’m going to assume that its about something completely different, given the title. Three glacier ice records, played until they melt. If this were my piece, and I were to give it a title like this, it would be about time, and how it fades into the past, and how records are becoming such a treasured thing. The earth is becoming a largely treasured figure as well, as the environment is ever changing, and being destroyed by man.

  2. This piece encompasses many different meanings. It is a sound piece, a performance piece, its an installation if you will. The photo server only to document what happened, and is bound to fail to recreate the event.
