“Ice Angel” by Dominic Harris – From snow angels to angelic forms

The installation is experienced through the participation of the viewer who adopts the role of performer. The viewer becomes the subject of a living portrait, with their hidden "angel" revealed for all to see. As the user moves their arms a new wing shape appears, unfurling from the shoulders, creating the angel traces within virtual snow. The wings are created dynamically and are linked to the participant, creating a performance proportional to the user’s physical extents. The installation has a ‘memory’, capturing a hidden view of the participant and their angel wings, and this specific angel identity remains linked to that participant in any future encounters with the artwork.
