Your Waste of Time

Famous Danish-Icelandic artist Ólafur Elíasson is well known for his sculptures and large-scale installation art employing elemental materials such as light and water. In 2013 he placed several massive pieces of ice that broke off from Iceland’s largest glacier, Vatnajökull, in a room that was cooled down below 0°. The oldest ice in the glacier is estimated to have originated some 800 years ago. »Your Waste of Time« took place as part of EXPO 1: New York in New York City (he first exhibited ice in 2006 in Berlin).
