Straightforward and wry, Ice documents the consequences of time and gravity on a bold, simple action. A man rests his hand on a vial of upright toothpicks. As he suspends his hand over a table, the toothpicks drop one by one onto the glass surface below. Recording this performance in real time and in a single take, Barr achieves a heightened atmosphere of dramatic tension in a conceptual anecdote.
