ICEHOTEL – day sixteen

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 […]

ICEHOTEL – day fifteen

We finished the medium sized UFO and fixed the walls so we could put the UFO up without having to work around it. Later on we had to do that anyway, but that’s another story. You’ll see.

ICEHOTEL – Day fourteen

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 […]

Ok, we’re very sorry about the delay. We’ve been busy. We are actually doing two jobs up here at the same time. One is to build the suite and one is to record short presentations for all the artists making suites here at the Icehotel. The work with the suite is finished now though. We […]

ICEHOTEL – day thirteen

Ok, so we haven´t been that good at updating the blog. But we will try to improve! A lot of things is going on, both in the suite and outside. Today, the biggest challenge was to get our ufo off the ground and up on the beam of ice. This was actually probably the biggest […]

ICEHOTEL – day ten

This has been a really intense weekend, with a lot of work and a lot of parties. Our ufo has been spinning, the chisels has been carving, and the lathe worked really well. Without actually ever having seen a ufo, I think this is as close to a real one we can come with snow […]

ICEHOTEL – day eight

Finally we have started with some ice sculpting! This day we spent putting up the last pieces of the ice beam that will be the first thing that people will see when they enter the suite. We had our worries, since each of the blocks weigh around 3-400 kilos… not something you just throw up […]

ICEHOTEL – day seven

Another day of hard work passed in our suite. We focused on the walls today, and the first ufo made its way in. It is now hovering over the place where we will eventually put the bed. We also proceeded with our impression of the Aurora Borealis, the pattern that reaches from one wall to […]

ICEHOTEL – day six

After resting the whole Sunday, we were back working with full speed ahead yesterday. Since it´s too cloudy and snowy to see any nothern lights, we stayed in the suite and got a lot of work done, mostly on the walls. It was a really cold day, one of those days when it actually feels […]
