My paintings and photographs have always registered an emotional response to geological discoveries. However, my present goal is to communicate more than visual beauty and artistic process. With the POLITICS OF SNOW project I am challenging the traditions of landscape representation by using scientific repeat images as well as charts, graphs and symbols to develop alternative visual systems. I have attempted to reveal temporal realities and the seriality of change in terms of climate change through this investigation.
