Album Description
The Ice Writing is about what will be revealed as ice thaws. Messages appear in linguistic symbols of human culture including cuneiform, petroglyph, hieroglyphic, Mayan, Sumerian, Gaelic, emogee, chromosome pairs and Klingon. These messages show us our history, how we got to where we are and directions of how to proceed to talk to each other regardless of linguistic. political and physical barriers. Water is immune to our limitations.
