“Art Shanty Projects is an artist driven temporary community exploring the ways in which the relatively unregulated public space of the frozen lake can be used as a new and challenging artistic environment to expand notions of what art can be.”
As you can see, they have experimented with ice lettering in a more permanent fashion. These are more like ice gravestones, aside from the text. I think ours could be more thoughtful, but it’s nice to see examples of something we’d like to accomplish.
It’s also an interesting idea to create an artistic community for a set period of time in a temporary natural setting.
