This sculpture is a smaller scale reproduction of an ephemeral neve approximately 20 by 6 meters
in size. I immortalized this snow dump, whose surface reminded me of a sand dune, on the Rhône glacier in July 2018 using photogrammetry techniques. The shape was then faithfully reproduced in three dimensions, while the original color and texture were modified to resemble ice.
This translucent reproduction is presented on a luminous base with yellowish lighting, which in contrast evokes an idea of warmth, or even a sunset. Work commissioned by the Bally foundation for culture.
