In the artist’s own words: “The glacier lagoon at Jokulsarlon is a sadly beautiful place. You’ll see the most beautiful shades of blue there. The morning we were there, it was also fogged in, making it all the more mesmerizing. This place only exists because of global warming. As the glacier fragments break off, they pass through this lagoon on their way out to the ocean. The size and depth of the lagoon has increased over the years, with more glacial melt.”
