The build begins
When winter is at its darkest and coldest hour, artists from all over the world arrive to the village of Jukkasjärvi. With only a few hours of daylight during this period of polar night the sky shifts in various colours. From the most concentrated blue to the brightest purple, before it settles again a few hours after noon. These artists come to take part in the shaping of the art exhibition in snow, ice and light that constitutes Icehotel.
