This system supports and manages ice formed in the shape of five monuments including the Taj Mahal, the Colosseum, a Mayan Temple, the Parthenon, and a Pyramid. As the ice monuments melt, the water drains through plastic tubing and waters the fern growing beneath. Each monument displayed has three material versions; version one - frozen water, version 2 - sand mixed with water, version 3 - concrete (a combination of cement, sand and water). Each material is allowed to deteriorate undisturbed throughout the exhibition.
