The winter of 2021 makes us particularly impatient. Ice cream becomes a signifier for the sensual and social pleasures we miss. Since ice cream shops are still closed, the audiovisual installation Significant Pleasures will help to stimulate our sensual memories of ice cream.
An obvious attraction seems to emanate from the hibernating ice cream shop, once the lights are turned on. Passers-by, children, and adults try to catch a glimpse through the window to see if there is still, or already ice cream inside the counter.
The light composition in the ice cream counter serves as a reminder of the vivid colors of various ice cream flavors on display. The pulse of the light refers to the pleasurable sound of eating ice cream. It can be listened to from outside the shop via QR-code.
