“Frozen relic”:

For their latest project, Frozen Relic, they embarked on an oceanic journey across the seas of the Arctic, mapping the unique contours of the ice floes they discover there. To illustrate the scale and complexity of these vast objects within a gallery environment ScanLAB have created CNC moulds of each floe and cast them in salt water. Over the course of the day the these frozen sculptural forms melt and are re-cast overnight, illustrating the fragile nature of the Arctic waters and their fast-disappearing frozen islands.

Somewhere on the outskirts of Marrakech, Morocco, inside a vault housed beneath the shadow of the Atlas Mountains, there sits an engraved silver-and-nickel box with the potential to spawn a shift in the way music is consumed and monetized.

The lustrous container was handcrafted over the course of three months by British-Moroccan artist Yahya, whose works have been commissioned by royal families and business leaders around the world. Soon, it will contain a different sort of art piece: the Wu-Tang Clan’s double-album The Wu – Once Upon A Time In Shaolin, recorded in secret over the past few years.
