You Changed Everything (Text On Ice)

You Changed Everything (Text On Ice)

Urban furniture

Using silicon bakeware, water, cardstock, and monofilament line, we created temporary text works to be placed around the city. The ice blocks are approximately 22cm x 22cm, while the letters cut out of cardstock are embedded in the ice using a technique similar to building backyard skating rinks, creating layers of ice by continually flooding the bakeware with water.

To ensure clear ice, boil the water before freezing twice. Silicon bakeware makes for the easiest way to get the block of ice out. Using cardstock allows for easier adjustments of the letters when they get wet.

"You Changed Everything" is just the first of other texts to come.
