Austral Blue is a trip to the heart of Perito Moreno, one of the most spectacular glaciers in the Argentine
Patagonia. It’s a place dominated by a massive extension of ice that has been accumulated along the centuries.
The ice turns into blue year by year, creating infinite textures and tonalities. As an exceptional situation, during
the summer, ice caves are formed inside the glacier.
This event turns to be one of the most impressive scenarios in the world. The particular blue vision of the caves
turns this place into magical and unique.
Located in Southern Andes, Perito Moreno invents a new colour: Austral Blue. Austral Blue is the colour that
reflects the Patagonian ice after centuries lying in the mountains.
The atmosphere inside the caves is surprisingly warm and very peculiar. The soft texture of the ice inside the
caves draws the contradiction with the outside of the glacier, always grotesque and abrupt.
Since the very beginning, the ice from the top of the glacier is constantly pushing down the rest of the ice until it
melts creating a lake. The massive ice is in constant movement and the caves are as ephemeral as the feeling you
get when you go inside. It normally lasts one or two days maximum. Light, Colour and Texture get together in this
confine of the world to model the ice and show how surrealistic and oniric Nature can be.
