Team 13: Jonny Hayes / Peter Briggs
Come dabble in a paddle through the tropical ice! Dare to enter this chilly crevasse, with salmon, guppy, eel and bass… Hop in for a swim in the twisty ice flow, or at least a peek, or a dip of your toe… Frolic with fellow new fishy fresh friends, flippery things frozen from end to end… Ice is nice in a cold winterscape, Icequarium, Icequarium … we can’t wait!
Jonny Hayes, since the age of neon, mohawks and rolled pant legs, has been ambitious to engage in everything winter. The second biggest engagement was the move to Alaska from snowy Buffalo, and since then all things have turned out pretty – cool. An admirer and manipulator of landscapes through the seasons is what Jonny most enjoys, and the challenges of understanding processes and developing useful skills is typically the first step. Participating in FREEZE is a celebration of the things Jonny enjoys most.
Peter Briggs, in previous incarnations in warmer climates has offered short courses to people less familiar with the science and application of snow (i.e. Physics of Snow 101 — Trajectory, Snow Chemistry 310 — Moisture and Compaction, and Snow Medicine 421 — Healing Effects of Snow Down the Back). As a northern landscape architect, developing all-season landscapes (including winter!) is key. As a northerner in general, Peter cherishes the opportunity to celebrate winter with humor, chilly fun and a special kind of art … FREEZE!
