Frozen (in time) considers the materiality of old family snapshots and the paradox of photography. Whilst appearing to offer eternal life and freeze time photographs also record the ageing process of loved ones, and of oneself. 
Ice preserves, similarly a photograph freezes time and is taken to keep a memory alive. However, old analogue snapshots are fragile and easily destroyed. They are defenceless against physical deterioration and ageing. These previously treasured paper objects will eventually, finally, fade. Accordingly, they mimic the inevitable disappearance to which we are all destined.
