RESOURCE is a series of 7-foot high letters cast in ice. The process involved creating wooden forms for each letter, which were then carried out onto Lake Nippissing, stood upright and filled with water. They used a pump to get water from the lake. The hole they dug with the auger showed the lake ice to be 18 to 24 inches deep. The forms were left to freeze for two weeks and then they were unmoulded the day before the opening.
