‘Everything is Melting' by Will Nolan Brings Back Childhood Memo

For many people, a melting ice treat is a nostalgic memory from childhood, and for Australian artist Will Nolan, this feeling is no exception. Entitled 'Everything is Melting,' this graphic series feels both abstract and real because of its shapeless patterns and its universal resonance in viewers' minds.

Witnessing a melting object is in itself an artistic experience, as the dissolving item becomes a different one. In this series, the colorful liquid of the ice blocks creates a cool design. Additionally, the wooden stick on top automatically reminds many people of a hot summer in their youth, making this photography project an allegory of life and transformation.

The art work by Will Nolan is more than a science project, it's a beautiful "reminder of the inescapable future of decay and death," as the artist declares.
