UK - London - South Kensington - V&A Museum - Ice Angel
Lunchtime visit to the V&A Museum in South Kensington, taking in some of the exhibits which were part of the London Design Festival.
Ice Angel by Dominic Harris and Cinimod Studio is an interactive artwork that gives each participant a glimpse of him or herself in angelic form. The work is inspired by the way children create snow angels in fresh snow. It responds to the user’s arm movements to create a unique pair of digital angel wings. The wings are created dynamically and are linked to the physical proportions of the individual participant. The artwork also has a ‘memory’: if a user returns after a day, a month or a year, the device will remember them and recreate their own unique angel wings for them again.
Ice Angel is at the V&A as part of the London Design Festival.
