IGLOO 4 hours later

4:00pm The original ice shelf was over 40" long. It broke almost as soon as the performance began. After the performance, Andrea set up a newly constituted ice shelf: shorter pylons, narrower span to take a few pictures of how it might have been.
8:30pm It was just too interesting to take down.
As I descended from the apartment, I could smell the muddy smell of grass after a rain.
As I write this the video camera is recording the slow melt.The reconstituted ice shelf still holds, but it is diminishing fast. Coming back after 4 1/2 hours the change is dramatic.

It looks like the High Tides of the Bay of Fundy have been swirling and cutting away the parts.
