Nicole Dextras (Canada) is an environmental artist working in a multitude of media including sculpture,
interactive public installation and photography.

Un travail d’artiste, de photographe et de graphiste en interaction avec l’espace naturel. Par exemple son travail sur sur les vêtements dans des blocs de glace : “IceShifts is a series of photographs consisting of deconstructed garments frozen into blocks of ice, which are then photographed. This new artwork grew out of a photographic study of fabric suspended in water, which evolved into freezing clothing and enabling the light to shine through it. My first outdoor experiments in 2005 instigated a profound shift in my artistic practice, moving from static artworks towards one of installation and a time-based methodology. Today ice has become both a photographic and sculptural medium and it’s ephemeral nature speaks to the deep correlation between humans and the biological environment.”
