Have you ever wanted to ski in and out of an art exhibit? Well, here’s your big chance. On view now until it begins to melt (approximately mid-April) next to the Icehotel in Sweden is photographer/sculptor Anna Öhlund and lighting designer John Petterson’s light and photography exhibit titled A Warm Story about a Cold Place. Located in its own snow and ice building, the ephemeral exhibition captures the ever-shifting and momentary Arctic light and life of the frozen hotel. The light cycle in the exhibit runs 15 minutes and photographs are positioned within both circular cutouts in the walls and big free-standing ice blocks. Very cool in all meanings of the word.

There is also a companion book of the same name.
