The Snow Show! In the winter of 2004 a unique cultural event, The Snow Show, will take place in Lapland. Internationally recognized architects like Steven Holl and artists, for example Yoko Ono, will collaborate to design installations using as their primary materials snow and ice.

They already made some pretty cool previews last winter.

damn finns, giving the Icehotel a run for their customers. ;)

I've stayed in the icehotel actually, you get a diploma with the temperature written on it the next morning. -35 outside -10 Celsius inside. Each room is different with icesculptures and/or pictures sculpted into the walls. The absolut bar is gorgeous and drinking vodka in the ice is a hoot. Trying to see both these events in one winter would be neat...

Ice makes such a great medium, especially in places that can offer huge chunks of it easily, so this sounds like a great event... Here are some images from the 2003 World Ice Art Championships in Fairbanks. (and a CSM article.)
