Mark Eischeid


These colour charts document the colours of the buildings along a transectional walk from the edge of town to the harbour (Buildings) and the colours of icebergs during a boat trip to the Ilulissat Icefjord (Icebergs). Each colour in the print is presented in the sequence in which it was observed, starting at the upper left corner of the colour chart and finishing in the lower right corner. The variety of building colours reflects the breadth of house paint options available to the citizens of Ilulissat, while the variety of iceberg colours reflects the influence of ice density, snow depth, sun angle and shadow on iceberg colour. Composing the observations on colour in this manner allows the viewer to read and understand a landscape in a unique way.

Please note; this print has now sold out.
