Polar Ice Cap Floor Projection

To draw attention to the issue of melting ice caps, this innovative projection game was created for the Ice Detectives exhibit. The simple goal is to stay on the ice as it breaks apart and shrinks. As players move about the ice, polar bear footprints appear on the ice and turn to splashes on the water (check out the video links in the credits below to see it in action).
