Jen Hutton’s Surrealistic Snow-fort

August 7, 2008

By Mike Landry

Surreal, fabricated, extraterrestrial—three unlikely words Jen Hutton uses to describe a blue and pink ice/snow pile outside an ice rink.

She noticed the pile accidentally when leaving her suburban hometown of St. Mary’s, Ontario. Hutton was so intrigued by the unusual shape and placement of the snow she’s created a 500sq/ft structure based on it for Ecotecture Canada and the DeLeon White Gallery

“It’s funny, because I had recently come back to that formation over the past couple of months—was interested in it as a land form, just this incongruous thing,” says Hutton. “I really liked this fantasy side of it and I thought I could really manipulate that somehow.”
