Olafur Eliasson Brings Ice Watch Installation to London
Nice write-up from designboom on Olafur Eliasson’s new installation in London.
working in collaboration with leading geologist minik rosing, the blocks of ice were taken out of the waters of the nuup kangerlua fjord in greenland where they were melting into the ocean after having been lost from the ice sheet. in london, 24 blocks are arranged in a circular grove on bankside outside tate modern, where a major exhibition of olafur eliasson’s work will open in july 2019. six additional blocks will be on display outside the european headquarters of bloomberg. as the ice gradually thaws, members of the public have an opportunity to encounter the tangible effects of climate change and feel the ice melt away.
