Still life, frozen beauty

Still Life! Artists Peder Istad & crew in team with artist Kjell Erik Ruud have buildt this icebox surrounding a house in Finnmark, Norway, between Hammerfest and Alta.
The house is frozen in, and symbolically concerved reminding us of times that are constantly changing.
The project is produced by KOROKORO- Art In Public Spaces.

Thanks everybody!

After 48 houres the ice sculpture For Haiti was finished after a mad work-effort from Peder Istad and his crew. Lots of people and companies joined in and helped spontaniously. Great to experience this solidarity between people. Without this effort it would not have been possible! Thanks! At 1545 today Sunday it was constantly people inside supporting the water-project, enjoying the magic of the ice.
So if the weather stays cold, the project can stay and remind us about Haiti when the cameras have been turned off. Well done people! Dog
