Featured in the recent Sanya Art Festival, the installation "ICELAND" made its debut. Located in the southernmost of Hainan Island, Sanya is an international tourist city known as 'the torrid zone'. This environment meets my ongoing exploration and objective to support people with new ways to perceive the environment via public art installations. The stunning autumn scenery provided the catalyst and inspiration point for "Iceland". The distribution of the main visual points of the iceberg and the natural stones near the streams outside the hotel 3D scanning was easily facilitated. The luminescent composite material installations were constructed through CNC moulding, and the RGB value of the luminous LED was collected from the iceberg's original colour.
Finally, This installation was assembled on the surface of the stone. The surrounding environment calculations needed to be carried out accurately, with the work then completed through a complex process of placement which involved collaging two different geographical locations as a montage. The final result is a new space that challenges one's perception of the environment. As a result, when the night falls, the blue halo slowly creates the iceberg's visual experience space.
