Books have to be heavy because the whole world’s inside them.
The approach of Halloween is the perfect time to share photos of a beautifully haunting winter art installation created by American architect, designer, and artist Mark Szulgit. Created in 2011 for Norway’s Munch in Snow and Ice exhibition in Oslo, Szulgit’s eerie installation was inspired by Norwegian artist Edvard Munch’s famous painting, Girls on the Bridge.
The modern interpretation of Munch’s classic painting consisted of 13 icy figures ascending a bridge that was nearly 50 feet long and about 15 feet tall. It was prominently placed in front of the Royal Palace for all to see.
Groups of ghostly female figures, sculptures made of snow and ice dressed in beautiful white dresses and hats, appear to mingle on a snowy incline. While their body language suggests that they’re socializing, the absence of any heads or bodies makes this wintry scene feel like a ghost story brought to life.
