Title: Modern Ice

Capture Date/Time: February 8 2008 18:14
Camera: Nikon D100
Lens: 60mm f/2.8D AF Micro-Nikkor
Focal Length: 60mm
Aperture/Shutter Speed: F/8 - 1/5 sec
ISO: 200
Flash: None

Finally got a chance to see the Museum of Modern Ice on display at Millennium Park. Although it's colorful and somewhat interesting, I felt that the media hype will make anyone who sees it in person feel kinda let down. I wish the installation was more dimensional instead of just being a double sided wall of ice.

It's a great picture, and I racked my brain trying to figure out in what natural way ice like that could have formed. Frozen-burst containers of juice or paint? And then I looked at the photo info and realized it was art :)

Art yes, but wouldn't it be interesting to know how it was done? Nice capture.

I totally agree. I was so excited when I hear "Museum of Modern Ice" thinking there would be cool, abstract, lit sculptures, but a wall.. I drove past it and it was really long, but not even very high. I was disappointed. But at least you got a cool shot out of it!
