Olafur Eliasson - Ice Watch London
Play Video

Film shot for the opening of the Ice-Watch Art Work by Olafur Eliasson.

Immense blocks of ice, harvested as free-floating icebergs from a fjord outside Nuuk, Greenland, stood from 11 December 2018 in a grove of 24 blocks on Bankside, outside Tate Modern, and in a ring of 6 blocks in the City of London, outside Bloomberg’s European headquarters, until they melted away. Each block of ice weighed between 1.5 and 6 tonnes. Fished out of the Nuup Kangerlua fjord, they had already been lost from the ice sheet and were melting into the ocean. The Greenland ice sheet loses 10,000 such blocks of ice per second throughout the year; fishing these blocks of ice from the sea did not affect the quantity of ice in Greenland.
