Lost Icebergs

Majesty of the Tabular Iceberg
The cold freshwater it contributes to the sea can influence currents and ocean circulation far away.
Melting, it leaks nutrients into the ocean around it, feeding a teaming world of plankton, fish, and other sea life.
Melting, it makes a fizzing sound as the water reaches compressed air bubbles trapped in ice millennia ago.
Melting, it leaves for ever.

Majesté de l’iceberg tabulaire
L’eau douce froide qu’il transmet à la mer peut influer sur les courants et sur la circulation océanique sur une très grande distance.
Fondant, il disperse autour de lui des nutriments, nourrissant un univers grouillant de planctons, de poissons et d’autres animaux marins.
Fondant, il fait un bruit de pétillement quand l’eau atteint les bulles d’air piégées et comprimées depuis des millénaires.
Fondant, il nous quitte pour toujours.2Icebergs12x36On view at the Stephen Shaar Community Centre, Hudson, QC, April 1 to 30, 2016
