Creating a “glacier formation” using glass and information.
People are no longer able to grasp information from an entire picture perspective since the huge volume of information continues to increase. People only recognize the portion of information that they have extracted, and perceive the mass of information as the environment surrounding them. People that exist in this environment inevitably disseminate information on a constant basis, and the entire picture of information continually changes.
When people enter the glacial formation made from glass in which information is projected, the fixed relationship of how that individual perceives information is transformed, and by being immersed in the information, that individual experiences the information as the environment which surrounds him. The environment itself is then transformed by this individual. Each individual extracts information at certain times, and is integrated into the information at some point in time.
Information is focused by a certain part of the glass, and is diminished by the opacity and reflective properties of glass, becoming part of the environment. When the individual follows the information and walks through the exhibit, the space itself is transformed, becoming part of the environment which is a shadow. By interacting with a variety of information, the glacier changes while brightly shining.
When the transparency and reflective properties of glass are integrated with the projection and display of information, a space that allows people to interact in a brand-new way with information is created.
