Kuusamo was chosen to be the Ice Screen Project location because of its special nature, environment and the co-operation with Kuusamo College. There will be a local point of view and knowledge through nature photographies from Kuusamo College. The ice event combines photography with experimental moving image: animations and bitmapping projected into ice and environment.

In this interactive work of ice the viewer confronts nature in a new perspective when walking through two walls of ice. The captured images of nature mixtures together with  experimental videos. In distance can be seen wheels of modern technology.
