The Ice Book

The Ice Book is a fascinating blend of pop-up book, shadow theater, and film. The work is a love story, brought to life as a series of images and shadows projected against a miniature stage made of pop-up paper cutouts.

The creators, Davy and Kristin McGuire, are interested in turning the work into a full-scale theater production, but the charm of the piece seems to be the miniature scale which emphasizes the physical delicateness of the work. The blend of old and new media is interesting, and might lose some impact on a larger scale.
