Contraband approached Icebox on behalf of their client Inmarsat to create an icy experience which would enrich their two day ICE initiative London conference. Icebox devised the concept of a three hour live carving performance based on Inmarsat’s I5 satellite. The Satellite would be carved from a 4m x 2m wall of ice which would include the 4m satellite as well as a 2m x 1m ice planet, shooting stars and galaxies. The ice sculpture was carved on site to 2001: A Space Odyssey and other space themed music in front of 500 people.
‘the result was everything we had hoped for, from the highly dramatic chainsaw start to the exquisite finish of a spectacular artwork – thank you! It made the evening event of our two day conference very special indeed!’
