Break the Ice demands our action, in a deep dive into ourselves to find out who we really are and what surrounds us. People are detected over a circular rug in real-time by a Kinect sensor. The ice cracks depending on the positions of the users and time which they have spent there. Their movements can either make the ice recede, making a video visible underneath, or make the ice form. The sound corresponding to the graphics is also generated in real-time using Overtone/Supercollider, incorporating the cracks, running water and ice formation.
