In collaboration with Meira, Pierre-Yves Paslier, Ozgun Kilic, and Lida Marinkova.
Exhibited at Tate Modern, Floe embodies the shape and movement of ice drifting on the surface of the North Atlantic.
The glass structure is combined with a simple wave movement and light bringing life to the piece. An interactive element was essential to the project; the audience influences the movement and light intensity with their presence.
This is the first prototype of an ongoing project, using a continuous rotation servo motor(+arduino), a distance sensor to track the presence of the audience in the environment changing the speed of rotation accordingly.
A single beamer as a light source adds another layer to the whole – random shapes are created on surrounding walls as a result of light rays reflecting from / breaking through Floe’s extremely thin glass layers.
