An aqueous and dark disk whose center is contrasted by an intense white. A perception of cold emanates from it, this element does not seem to undergo the same influence of temperature as the rest of the place. Like a microclimate, the water contained in its center has become crystallized, transforming the surface of this liquid material into an ice crust. A kind of bottomless pit whose frozen extent becomes the witness of a climatic metamorphosis, a phenomenon evoking a frozen temporality, a surface reflecting light which makes this zone unfathomable.
