Increasingly, frost is known to arrive without warning. In a recent severe Dutch winter, birds that were in the midst of their hunting flight have been found to be frozen into lake-ice, capturing an instance of flight. Hemidemisemiquaver is the term for the shortest note within musical notation, in the case of this project the title refers to the briefest of moments that is postponed within time. Freezing the instance in which a bird appears to be mid-flight, inside a mixture of meltwater and resin.
Eurasian Kingfisher, meltwater, resin. 27 x 38 x 26 cm
