Talk to a Dying Glacier.

If you could talk to a glacier, what would you say? British artist Katie Paterson thought that some people may actually want to hear the sounds of a dying glacier, and say something back in return. To facilitate such a conversation, she setup a waterproof mobile phone at the base of Europe's largest glacier.

If you're interested, the glacier can be reached at 07758 225698 until tomorrow, June 13th (international long distance rates apply). Link via Make
