Not so long ago the coming of winter also meant the promise of ice and the possibility of ice skating.
Because of Global Warming ice in the wintertime is not as common as it used to be.
Icebreaker reminds you of how the canals used to be frozen stiff and the spectacle of boats forcing themselves through the ice.
An Icebreaker breaking the pristine ice surface is disruptive and beautiful at the same time.
The spectacle of cracks appearing in the ice is exhilarating, leaving a peaceful and open waterway for others to pass through.
Boats cracking the ice of the canals have always called for strong emotions, not in the least of the lost promise of skating when the ice is broken.
Icebreaker is a nostalgic reminder of cold winters during which ice-skating was normal and of the fact that this now has changed because of global warming.
Ice cracking is a metaphor for things lost that cannot be repaired.
The feeling that climate change is evoking at this moment, the ice cracks, the planet warms up, is it irreversible?
Time to act!
