Proposal for an Appalachian Glacier

Wade Kavanaugh and Stephen B. Nguyen
Awarded Amount: $5000


We will create the first self-generating glacier in the Appalachian Mountains since the Quarternary Period. The first phase of the project will explore the fundamentals of glaciology to establish a vision for a glacier that will grow, move, and ultimately transform the Maine landscape. This conceptual phase of the project will take form in a charrette, at which we will present a temporary sculpture in an indoor space that mimics the scale and presence of the proposed glacier in conjunction with technical drawings and site photographs. This exhibition will engage experts and stakeholders in the process of review, critique, and improvement of the proposal.
