“ICETASTIC”

by Savvy

Time for another Katie Paterson.

Langjökull, Snæfellsjökull, Solheimajökull.

Are you wondering what these three long, pretty, almost undecipherable(to meager human beings like I) words are? These are the names of my future triplets.
They will look like this:

Three glacier ice records, played until they melt.

listen.

Sound recordings from three glaciers in Iceland, pressed into three records, cast, and frozen with the meltwater from each of these glaciers, and played on three turntables until they completely melt“.

Awesome.

Ultimate. That’s the word.

All the Dead Stars —
A map documenting the locations of just under 27,000 dead stars – all that have been recorded and observed by humankind.

More greatness from Katie Paterson later.
