Dutch Artist To Place Art Atop A Melting Iceberg (VIDEO)

According to the World Wildlife Fund, nowhere are the effects of climate change more evident than in the Arctic, where its progression is twice as fast and twice as deep as the rest of the world. This year, no ice formed around the village of Umanak in Greenland, preventing the Inuit residents from using their dogsleds, which they depend on to get around, Reuters reported.

Dutch artist Ap Verheggen is teaming up with WWF to draw attention to extreme cases of climate change. Verheggen is attempting to give form its effects by building two giant sculptures, which are shaped to resemble dogsled riders, Reuters reported. The sculptures will be placed on top of a glacier in Umanak, and when the ice breaks off, people can monitor the sculptures' journey via live camera until they eventually sink.
