Google AutoComplete

Each Glacier is a unique poem generated via the top three results for a specific prompt to Google autocomplete, presented on an e-ink screen. While they appear static on the wall, each actually refreshes itself once a day. While this construction process means that the poems may change, because of the immense amount of dataflow constructing the most popular autocompletes, it's likely that they will not be altered for months, years or even decades. Still, one day you'll wake up, and the poem will be different, the long moment passed.

Each Glacier is titled according to its poem, so as the poems change, the titles change. In this way, if it is shown in a gallery or museum, a Glacier is able to use show catalogs or other promotional materials as a medium to print and log its historical state.
