Starting as an empty white room, Roman Ondak’s Measuring the Universe at Tate St Ives has grown through the contribution of around 90’000 participants to a constellation of black marks.

In the future there's nothing more refreshing than a visit to the glacier museum. The last tiny chunks from each of the world's major glaciers have been lovingly collected and sealed into ziplock bags before they melted into the ocean or evaporated into the superheated atmosphere. You love to come here to beat the 132degree Reykjavik heat, rest your cheek on one of those majestic glaciers and dream of polar bears.
