Iveta Gabaliņa’s (1979) My hand is warmer than the Sun contains images of the untouched Svalbard shores, glaciers and their remnants brought to Riga. A block of Arctic ice also travels with them in a suitcase. Out of these two individual objects, new and unique images are created, which are both photographs and photograms. By melting on paper, the ice deforms the photographed landscapes, losing its volume with each new landscape and eventually disappearing forever.
