Olafur Eliasson - Your Waste of Time (2013)

"…Several massive pieces of ice that broke off from Iceland’s largest glacier, Vatnajökull, in a big room cooled down below 0°.

The oldest ice in the glacier is estimated to have originated some 800 years ago. Of course, the power needed to do this comes from solar panels that were installed especially on the roof of the MoMA PS1.”
