Listen to Vatnajökull glacier melt

The British artist Katie Paterson has made it possible for art lovers to listen to Vatnajökull glacier, the largest in Iceland and in Europe, melt with one phone call.

Paterson became fascinated with glaciers on her travels to Iceland and has now established a microphone in Jökulsárlón lagoon at the foot of Vatnajökull, Fréttabladid reports.

Callers can listen to rumbles when the glacier melts, breaks into pieces and icebergs fall into the lagoon. The telephone number is +44-(0)7758-225698.
