22 Views of Watching the Glacier Melt

22 Views of Watching the Glacier Melt is a slow-paced meditation on human interaction with nature, in this case, the Mýrdalsjökull glacier on the south coast of the Island. (pronounced [ˈmirtalsˌjœːkʏtl] in Icelandic.
It is situated to the north of Vík í Mýrdal and to the east of the smaller glacier Eyjafjallajökull. The glacier in the video is black due to the recent eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano, which covered the glacier in a blanket of black ash last spring. This acts as a thermal blanket, speeding up the melting and causing significant glacial flooding.
Filmed during my August 2010 photographic trip to Iceland, and edited while in residence at the Biosphere 2, I welcome your feedback as I continue to tweak the piece.

**I would particularly like to thank Camden Hardy, graduate student of photography par excellence at the University of Arizona, Tucson, for his assistance with the editing of the video.**
