FREEZE was a celebration of Alaska and life in the North. In January 2009, artists, architects and designers from Alaska and around the world came together to create large-scale outdoor installations in downtown Anchorage using snow, ice and light—distinctly northern elements. While participants were organized, into “teams”, this was not a competition, but rather collaboration between individuals and disciplines and a sharing of ideas and perspectives. 4letterword was a collaboration between Karen Larsen and Mary Ellen Read (northern front studio – Whitehorse, CA). Snowdrifts was the piece created. Snowdrifts blanket and conceal, enclose you in a quietness An awareness of the mass each snowflake carries as it covers a landscape Ice formed by pressure, snowflakes accumulating, exploring what is revealed when the snow melts Blows away, clears and uncovers — tunneling to the center, discovering what is buried beneath.
