Ice hasn’t been forming as often as expected on the metal pipes and strings of the 20-foot-tall sculpture, located outside Dartmouth’s Class of 1978 Life Sciences Center, reports VPR. Moskow says that he and co-designer Robert Linn are considering moving Ice Chimes to a colder climate in the future. When asked if the North or South Pole is a possibility, Moskow responds, “Yes, but then would there be people there to appreciate it?”
