sophie anne edwards: Ice Poems

These poems were co-created with ice along the Kagawong River. A sheet of ice had broken off the bank and dropped into the river, leaving an exposed, flat ice ridge. I stood on the separated ice shelf below, shifting with the moving river, and penned the words with water-based ink. The ice did its thing.
