Come into the cold
From beers to blood, freezers and refrigeration preserve so many of the things that our society holds dear. Not only do these technologies make a range of resources available to us, ideas about cold suffuse art, science, literature and commerce.
This blog is an experiment in curation. I want to bring together ideas about and practices involving cold in contemporary culture to see what I can it learn about what it means to be warm-blooded today.
So, I’ll be promiscuous in my postings – trying to push at the limits of what can be contained within a virtual exhibition of cold. Each post can be considered a “freeze frame” – a snapshot of a particular expression of coldness at this moment in time.
I hope you’ll be drawn into a world that’s so frozen its cool.
