Freeze | Thaw

Sophie Krause

Conceptual model aims to make legible the processes of freeze and thaw through a static, 3-dimensional form. Manifestations of chemical state change, refraction, and the process’ cyclical nature is re ected through materiality and perspective.

Like water moving through the physical states, glass is manipulated with shards, scratches, and glue to represent the transition from solid, to liquid, to gas. Light and shadow functions as an interactive component to mirror the act of freezing and thawing, creating unique outcomes under different conditions, as the panels bend light through various mediums.
