Sound of Butterfly: Frozen Moment
“Frozen Moment” is the second in the series “Sound of Butterfly”, a reflection on the journey of Ham’s mother through life, depression, and death. Over the years, the artist photographed many of the belongings her mother had left behind. The artist also created photographs of places and times resonant of her mother’s presence. Ham placed these images in a 4”x4” box with water in a freezer. Each frozen picture was then re-photographed on a lightbox. The series was created to document and preserve moments and objects that would have vanished, or like memory, would have decayed and faded.
