Of Ice and Tears was initiated as an ode to the Sea of Ice’s grandiosity, thought a response to ecological tragedy and experienced as a meditation on modesty between the retreating glacier and ourselves.

The book experience intends to empower the glacier's unheard voices and forgotten stories through intimate interactions between penetrative and nuanced depictions of the Sea of Ice's character and evolution in contrasting written forms and styles.

As a meditative exercise, the different voices and nuanced sensibilities invite us to participate in the glacier’s long layered story, ultimately reviving this lost sense of belongingness.
