Simone Rosenbauer has filtered her views of the self, fleeting moments and chequered memories in her photographic series, Like Ice in the Sunshine. Rosenbauer takes the happy simplicity of an ice block to capture moments loved and lost, to dwell on ephemeral experiences and to chart the strength – and frailty – of changing identities. Leaving the natural sun to shape a mix of perennially loved paddle pops, ice becomes liquid, pooling around the melting whole. Bitter or sweet, all memories eventually melt into the flow of life.
