(Ice Maze) is an interactive art installation, a temporary sculpture designed to allow children to experience movement through a variety of spatial situations, from tight restrictions to openings into greater spaces dominated by the sky.
The idea is for children to engage with the space and have fun; to create their own mysteries, to get lost, to find their way.
Once inside, the child's senses are dominated by the sky, by the ice, and the dimensions of a variety of spaces; the outside world is (for the moment) set aside.
It is hoped that this world is one of creativity, independence, cooperation, and discovery, for both mind and body.
Constructed of walls of ice and snow, this single material forms the entire installation. In spring, it crumbles and is gone; the memory remains, then also fades with time.
