The day before the last day… It was starting to feel now, the time pressure. On this day we built the bed frame and Martin continued with the lights. We finished up some loose ends and started to feel really good about the atmosphere in the room. Check check check it out!
The last pice of the ice wall was placed and glued. The glue we use here, when gluing together ice, is ordinary tap water. You just have to get it really cold before you pour it on, which frankly isn’t very hard up here. We made a big effort to get the walls as ready […]
The bad thing about having a timelapse camera is when you forget it at home. That’s what happened on this morning. That’s why you can’t see how we got the medium sized UFO up on the ice pillar. Maybe it flew by it self? We don’t know… This day was also the day when Martin […]
On the fourteenth day, they started to create the slightly smaller UFO. We put the snice block on the lathe and started to make it round. Then we paused that work for a while and continued with the walls. It looks like there is not so much work done, but believe me, there are a […]

It’s an old tradition amongst the artists here which is done every year. Today the carousel was around 20 meters in diameter and […]
Ok, so it might seem like we didn’t do so much work today but believe us, we did. We planned all and we drew sketches on the walls (which you can’t see because it’s on the opposite side of the camera view). So we’re happy and satisfied with our day. Hopefully we’ll get a more […]
