SNOW PLOW TRACE (SCARTS x SIAF Lab)
When winter comes, people living in northern countries face severe cold and snow.
Sapporo has an infrastructure called "snow removal" that quickly and efficiently prepares a large amount of snow. In this project, various aspects of the act of "snow removal" are considered as media, and research and development will be promoted from a long-term perspective.
As part of that process, Winter Change will collaborate with SIAF Lab to experimentally create a media art installation. The information obtained from the GPS, microphone, etc. installed in the snowplow is converted into blinking lights and movement of the motor, and the snow that floats up by the snowplow reminds us of the traces of the snowplow.
