In a watery medley titled Langjökull, Snæfellsjökull, Solheimajökull, Katie Paterson created music out of glacier ice and then played them until they melted. The poetry behind this? Now that they are melted, this is the only documentation that glacier's even existed. How delightfully hipster, Katie Paterson!
