ICE 

 

Ice in Dan Diego - Usually only floats in our drinks, but this shimmering structure which could be associated with the traditional holiday season, actually represents the chemical properties of ice and water. The water molecules, made of one oxygen atom (red) and two hydrogen atoms (white) bonded together, are floating freely in the pool. When the cold allows these molecules to cluster tightly together, they change their state and become ice (solid water). This light installation is totally off the grid, powered from a single solar panel. Commissioned by NTC foundation for the opening of the new ice rink at  Liberty Station's Arts & Cultural District, and fabricated by SD Sound Solution  www.sdsoundsoultions.com
