The work is installed on the site of the slipway where the RRS ‘Discovery’ was built. The interior negative forms are based on the sections of the ‘Discovery’. The artist was inspired by the story of the ‘Discovery’ getting trapped in the ice. The granite (from Portugal) was chosen to be as pale, sparkling, and ice-like as possible. It arrived as one 27 tonne block and was cut into 11 slabs at Fyfe Glenrock in Aberdeenshire then sculpted by the artist. Dundee Heritage Trust allowed access to the plans of the ‘Discovery’.
