One of Scottish born artist Anya Gallaccio's most dramatic pieces is intensities and surfaces, 1996. This was a 3x3x4 metre cubic block of ice which melted over a period of three months in an exhibition at Wapping Pump Station, London. 32 tons of ice was used for this mammoth frozen artwork.
As well as melting naturally at room temperature, the inner core of intensities and surfaces was made of rock salt which sped up its melting process. As the ice melted, the reflections in the water captivated viewers.
