FLOE:

Concept

"Floe" embodies the shape and movement of ice drifting on the surface of the North Atlantic. In this region shards of ice drift freely along the surface of the water slight changes in tide and intense northern lights bring life to the environment. The team looks into nature and human emotion for inspiration, and builds on the beauty and complexity of the world around us.

The project is a collaboration between 4 artists/designers from the RCA. Floe uses a stepper motor programmed with Arduino, and a proximity sensor to target the presence and distance of the audience. The piece stands out as an almost static delicate art piece in the gallery space, until a viewer comes to a certain distance, then the structure comes alive. This shift from the "art piece being an eye-object in the gallery" to "art piece being a living form" is the essence of the interaction Floe constitutes.
