Artist Olafur Eliasson has an exhibit about glaciers called Your Waste of Time at MoMA PS1 in New York City. But the exhibit isn't just about glaciers -- it's also made of glaciers. Eliasson broke chunks off Icelandic glaciers and flew them to Queens, which I guess is OK if the point of the exhibit is to make a point about "time that is measured in thousands of years rather than mere decades," as MoMA says, but is kind of ironic if he's trying to make any kind of statement about preserving glaciers.
