September 2022 - The Ice Block is symbolically the ephemeral remaining of the disappeared Ice Tunnel. The melting of this block is ongoing but its beauty will last through this visual archive.

Melt In Peace
The Ice Tunnel story could be one more of the multiple observations of distructive events happening on global scale. Since 2021, I have been personally and emotionally engaged following the dramatic changes occurring in real time in the region of Arolla in the south of the Swiss Alps. Since 2021, I have been observing and collecting visuals, 3D scans, video sequences, drone visuals and photographies of the ongoing spectacular decadence of this very singular Ice Tunnel which opened up couple years ago and has now, this very September 2022, gone away forever after countless thousands of years of existence. Suddenly, this archive collected is taking an unsuspected dimension and is undergoing postproduction for upcoming future events. More material and infos will be added on the website soon!
