goodbye to ice

Danish – Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson partnered with Danish geologist Manik Rosing to create a tangible commentary on climate change by bringing 12 blocks of glacial ice from Greenland to Paris for ArtCop 21.  The piece is titled “Ice Watch.”  By arranging the 12 pieces of ice like the numbers on a clock their melting in the temperate Parisian environment is a poignant reminder of our planet warming and the detrimental impact this will have on our fragile ecosystem.
