Phone a Glacier?


Today a unique piece of art was unveiled by Katie Paterson which invites views to phone a glacier - in Iceland - to listen to it's "death throes", live via a submerged microphone. Callers can hear the splashes, creaks and groans as great masses of melting ice sheer off and crash into the water.

The melting glacier, Vatnajokull, is Europe’s largest glacier.
