Marco Evaristti's Ice Cube Project.

Artist Marco Evaristti needed 790 gallons (3,000 liters) of red paint, three fire hoses, two icebrakers, a twenty-man crew, and two hours to paint an iceberg in the Ilulissat Fiord, Greenland in 2004.

I agree with catsav (see post #2). Photoshop could achieve this pic. I suppose witnessing this disturbance of nature in the flesh may have seemed impressive at the time, but what extreme insensitivity to the current world climate + concern at the environmental abuse of basically dumping toxins in a prestine environment. If I found an endangered snow leopard and killed it and posted a pic, would that be art? No. I'd just be something that rhymes with 'Anchor'. And that is what this guy essentially is. W-----. This is not art.

I hope that the paint does not hurt or harm the animals in the icy waters. Otherwize, it is a spectacular scene. I wonder what it looks like from the air?

Zip, dot dot, spanga spanga, spoodle de doo.
