geometrical icebergs by hugo livet question the origins of NASA's recent discovery

surprised and inspired by the recent news about tabular iceberg captured by NASA, paris-based artist hugo livet imagines an ocean full of precise geometrical chunks. editing existing photos of lonely blue and white scenes, he creates architectural structures one would never find in the wild.

on october 17, NASA published a twitter post with a photograph of a tabular iceberg discovered the day before. the piece caused controversial comments, because part of the company’s followers was not sure the piece is truly natural.

‘the first thing that came to my mind when I saw NASA’s image was “who did that?!!”,’ explains livet. through his work, the artist wants to broadcast his sense of doubt that this beauty is done by nature.
