Olafur Eliasson Brings 30 Icebergs to London

Visionary Icelandic-Danish artist and designer Olafur Eliasson, with the help of geologist Minik Rosing, set 30 iceberg, drawn from the waters inside Greenland’s Nuup Kangerlua fjord, along the banks of London’s Thames. It’s the next installment of his “Ice Watch” series, which appeared at Place du Panthéon in Paris back in 2015. Visitors to the installation can climb on, taste, smell and listen to the pieces as they melt away. These encounters aim to allow guests an understanding of what the world felt like before pollution, and remind them about the woes of climate change. 24 can be found in a circular grove outside the Tate Modern; six other blocks rest outside the Bloomberg headquarters in the City of London. The exhibition, which launched on 11 December, runs until the ice has melted. Read more at The Guardian.
