Two nights a week for the last four months, I’ve walked past an ice sculpture, part manmade and part nature. Most people wouldn’t care to notice something so insignificant on campus, but it caught my eye the first week of class. Perhaps it is because most people are here five days a week; the view of this mini-glacier is nothing glorious or awe-inspiring. But every time I walk by it, the sculpture morphs as the climate changes, ebbing and flowing as warmer temperatures melt the sculpture into a slicker and odder-looking subject, only to morph into a new icy state during freezing temps at night.
I decided to take snapshots on my smartphone whenever the mood struck me, and here’s the progression of the ice sculpture from February to April 2014:
Early Stages of the Ice Sculpture
Mid-Stages of the Ice Sculpture
Last Stages of the Ice Sculpture
I’ve enjoyed watching this piece of ice greet me every time I walk into class. The change in this sculpture helped me to see a little beauty in everyday life.
The End Stage – Temporal Sculpture Gone
Now that the snow has completed melted away in our yard, the boys and I decided to bask in the glorious warm sun to enjoy painting some random crafty objects.
What have you been up as the warm spring weather has been gloriously beaming down?
