Uniting the economies of abundance (sunlight) and scarcity (water), ONE NATURE is a ceremonial instruction set for global strangers. An out-of-work Russian ice sculptor wheels a hand-carved, miniature, iceberg landscape on a room service cart through the crowded Las Vegas strip. Accompanied by two formal waiters, the trio offers participants a chance to pick their "Degree of Commitment" from a deck of customized cards, and to mark this ceremony by donning wedding bands cast in ice, made from the recycled runoff of the landscape that is melting in front of them.
