Artist's Description

Brinicle – Ice Finger of Death

I saw some footage of an arctic brinicle online many months ago. I was so stirred by the images of this cold, creeping finger of brine freezing it’s way across the antarctic ocean floor that I decided to do a tribute to one of nature’s great and frightening oddities. If you haven’t heard about this occurrence, I encourage you to check out the footage below and the link over to the BBC article (also with footage) – amazing to see it in action.

Never ceases to amaze me how often reality can be just as bizarre as fiction. The poor little starfish and anemones never had a chance.
