The project created a kinetic paper sculpture in the form of an Arctic Ice Cap that shrinks in the Madrid sun using solar power cells. The sculpture is intended to highlight climatic predictions surrounding the shrinking of the Polar Ice Cap which covers the Arctic sea. This project focused on the experimental design and construction of a kinetic paper sculpture that collapses with the aide of motors, string, and solar power. Through the IceCap project we seek to create both an evocative kinetic sculpture and to address issues surrounding the predicted melting of the Arctic Ice Cap.
