During the fireworks which was part of the Whitehorse “Rendezvous” people gave “Be one” a break and we could make some videos. Right after the firework the crowd came back and all wanted to be one with the sculpture.

Snow sculptors at “shoe in the door” session. We learned that if someone puts a shoe in the door of a hotel room it means that the room is open for some drinks. Here you can see some of the carvers from Sweden, Korea, Japan Canada

“Be one” was a like a magnet for the visitors. In the night the sculpture showed the full potential. People queued in front of our sculpture, everybody wanted to interact with “Be one”.

The challenge is over and when reflecting on the week it was an exciting journey. There were so many variables in the game, the temperature, the time needed to build the sculpture, the time we had left to do missing coding for the interaction and the artificial snow with lots of voids. Lothar’s design turned out to be the right answer to all of that. The design was perfect for the environmental situation. “Be one” was the only sculpture with a sun roof and so the temperature was not so much a problem for us. Finally the interaction also worked as planned.

We are proud to say that we created a piece of art combining high class snow sculpting with “Maker culture art“. Adding interaction to the sculpture is a magnet for visitors and might open a new chapter in snow carving. “Be one” is the worldwide first interactive snow sculpture and we are happy that Whitehorse gave us the opportunity for this. Let’s see if this innovative combination inspires others to do something similar in the future.
