CONCEPT

Somewhat one can say I got inspired by Jacques Tati’s Playtime and investigated the idea of an artwork ‘under construction’, highlighting the dynamic between the incomplete installation and those interacting with it. Over the course of the night people built on the base, stacking cones, creating an ever-changing 3 dimensional piece. It ended up being a beautiful chaos, with some cones broken. It's life.

PRODUCTION DETAILS

The layout of the installation is 1.20m x 1.80m. The base consists of 322 original ice cream cones that have been hand painted with a double matt white coating. The ice cream cones are mounted on a white foam board.

The cone installation is utilising a complex grid system to function as a canvas for the audience interaction. Approximately another 550 cones have been painted by Nuno Oliveira and myself, by hand, in the typical ice cream colours vanilla, strawberry, pistachio and chocolate.


Private event; no press.
