 Ice means negative entropy and can be taken as a statement against cultural leveling. An Iceberg almost literally describes the substance beneath a surface and, in the sense of a melting global ice landscape, it carries the dramatic and most obvious ecological connotations. Ice as a material symbolizes also the cold blind spot of IT and AI: the necessity of permanent cooling the data systems against overheating/meltdown - with a steady increase of the data quantities. With the symbolic presence of these contexts, the ice block becomes an actor on his own, who has already risen to a specific size (respectively an entity). This entitiy represents not only its own presence per se, but also refers to the general unavailability of the systems. Ice is a frozen state in the sense of greater inaccessibility - both in the systemic sense and in a specifically spatially inaccessible territory. The work is carried out with the most obvious and material aspects of the material ice – as a 48 hours meltdown. Ice means negative entropy and can be taken as a statement against cultural leveling.
