During the COVID-19 winter, ice cream became a signifier for the sensual and social pleasures we miss. The audiovisual installation wants to 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.
