Artist Olafur Eliasson has brought 24 blocks (100 tonnes) of ice from Greenland to London for his installation Ice Watch, to coincide with COP24. The exhibit opened yesterday and will last about a week, when all the ice will have melted in the 40-ish degree London weather.

The artist encourages visitors to listen to the ice melting, get close to the ice, feel the chill, and touch the ice as it melts.

You can follow the ice as it melts on the web site Ice Watch London, and get more details about where the ice came from, facts about ice and the global climate, information about Greenland’s ice loss, and links to climate action and information materials.
