Burning Ice

Please bear with me as I catch up with everything I didn't post while I was on vacation...

Here are some photos from the Burning Ice exhibit in Union Square back on August 1st, by artist Chin Chih Yang.

The melting 21,000 lbs of ice in the middle of the square is meant to remind us of how our actions are affecting the glaciers, causing them to melt and bringing the ocean levels up. The flashing red lights and sirens embedded within the ice are like an alarm to wake us up and act against the melting ice.
