This is frozen Medicine Lake in beautiful Plymouth, Minnesota, home of the Art Shanty Projects. Art Shanty Projects is an artist driven temporary community. The frozen lake is used as a new and challenging artistic environment to expand notions of what art can be. Like playing dice in a dice house.
The dICEHOUSES Shanty reminds folks that there is no more efficient source of warmth than sitting across the table from one’s family, some good friends or strangers and playing some good ol’ table top games. Each of the 5 dICEHOUSES is stocked with The Book of Hoyle, playing cards, dice and games for all to play.
After all, maybe THIS is the real meaning of hygge?
Check this beautiful project here. The photo above was taken by a flying camera, attached to a kite! (a project we definitely want to try soon)
