MA work

Icehicle is a pollution-free hydrogen vehicle inspired by ice. Ice can change into snow, water and steam.

To approach a new design language, I investigated the surface of ice, which is really splendid when illuminated. I used the effect of light to emphasise the eco-friendly design. When using hydrogen fuel, ___Icehicle_ spreads water into the air, making a rainbow. My final presentation will include an avant-garde ice melting performance using an ice sculpture of the vehicle. The beauty of the performance will be that everything disappears.
