Your Waste of Time @ PS1
Had a fun Saturday at PS1's Warm Up party in Long Island City. Met a lot of people from MeetUp's group United Latino Professionals and had the chance to visit the Ice Room, Olafur Eliasson's installation titled 'Your Waste of Time' attempted to get the public up close and personal with the effects of globalization. Blocks of an Icelandic glacier were imported across the ocean to be placed on display in a refrigerated room (see pic below.) I'm a little too happy considering the exhibit's topic. However, the novelty of prancing around an "ice room" with 100 plus degree temperatures outside was, at the time, nothing but a luxury.
