Photographs by Alexis Neider and Nate Dorr
The ice hand sculptures are connected by a web of crochet tentacles that swim, entrap, and survey the waters. Ideally, the ice will act as a buoy for the ropes. As the ice melts, the tentacles will swim, fly in the current, and then sink. This piece is "surveillance" as an object, and also "baby jello."
