born and raised a great lakes boy and living in the northern state of wisconsin where there is more fresh water than anywhere else in the world, i have witnessed ice in all its incarnations, since 1983 i have documented these formations that occur on our lakes and especially the lake i live across from – lake monona, through this body of work, i have come to subconsciously name these formations mainly in order to catalog them: crackle, tornado, block, effervescent, wispy, frothy, pancake, glass, interstellar… and then I read that in the inupiaq dialect of wales, alaska, there are 70 documented terms for ice… i guess i have not seen all of them after all
