“ice screen” tried to be, on one hand, the moment in which we are staring at something and our thoughts start travelling in a different way, like when we get kind of hypnotized when looking at fire. the moment in which the only thing we see it´s its movement. on the other hand, it tried to be a moment of alert, reminding us of the speed in which we communicate when we don´t stop to observe.
the installation was created using an ice screen (4:3) which was melting throughout the day. the composition´s changes of state were generated in real time by the melting-ice´s drops using a piezoelectric sensor and a pure data algorithm. at the same time, the composition transitioned between blue and red, depending oht the viewer´s proximity to the ice screen, which was also detected by an electronic sensor (infrared).
materials: ice , computer, pure data software, piezoelectric sensor, infrared sensor.
