Polar Interval

Looking through a window into the unconscious of nature herself, we witness freezing as metaphor on at least three levels: chronology itself stops and each particular of movement is laid bare; glacial movement, already imperceptible to us, becomes a static feature of the vista; and the chemical transition from liquid to solid is foregrounded in the juxtaposition of sea and ice, oceanic flow and glacial flow, stark rock against vaporous clouds. Time, nature, and the physical world are caught in their overt movement and underlying transitions.
