THE ICE WALKER
THE ICE WALKER
The Ice Walker installation depicts a life-sized, or close to life-sized, Polar Bear in motion.
The sculpture will be mounted to a solid yet portable base. Internal lighting and a painted exterior will allow for different effects and a complete viewing experience regardless of the time of day. The panels that make up the sculpture will be slightly gapped, allowing light to emanate from an internal lighting source. The lights will have approximately 20 minutes of animated sequences that will repeat.
This sculpture will be 8-10 feet wide by 4-6 feet tall.
Retro Active Arcade plans to use recycled and reclaimed wood in their construction, along with as many other recycled materials as possible.
