Frost is a 20-foot tall interactive sculpture that will illuminate the National Arts Centre throughout the winter. The artwork is inspired by architecture, the geometry of a single snowflake, and the allure of a freshly frosted-over window pane.
Visitors to the National Arts Centre are encouraged to touch Frost. Run your hand along the sculpture and you will see that you cast a shadow in the field of light, the same way you leave a trail when drawing on a frosted window with your finger.
