Ledia Carroll – Snow Dump

Snow Dump, One dumptruck load of snow. Dimensions vary

These images from Spring 2004 Outside the Creative Research Laboratory, Austin, Texas

At the time I took these photos, I was making structures out of snow and ice in order to observe what forms the dumping would create, to observe the deterioration and to be in the time as I observed the deterioration. Here, I had a large truck load of manufactured snow dumped in the parking lot of the Creative Research Lab and documented its disappearance with photography and video. The snow dump took place in an urban environment. People were part of the deterioration process. It took a week to melt.
