David Dossett, a Martolo Alley artist in Kingston, is in trouble.

After looking at new inventions of store designs, the solution presented itself.

“I ordered two blocks this year. [of ice] From the factory north of London. And I had a special clear film from Lux Labs [to project the art]. We’ll put that in the snow, ”said Dosette.

Special film – commonly used for animation displays in store windows – can be used to design any artwork image you choose for profile. It brings the 300 pounds of ice on a truck to a designated location, illuminates the ice from below (or behind), projecting the image, uploading a special 360-degree virtual program, uploading photos, and uploading the images to the website.

Matterport is commonly used for online real estate scenes and “3D cameras and virtual tour software platforms. [digitize] Automatically create buildings and 3D tours, 4K print quality photos, shematic floor plans, videos, and more, ”he said.

“The snow is below, [so it] It looks like a sack that encloses with a drawstring. ” The ice used should be clear so that the images look good and in some way ice. He said that ice sculptures are the same type of ice used.

Froid’Art, or Art on Ice, is now available through the 3D program for viewing real estate scenes. Website photo.

The Froid’Art or Art on Ice project was successful this year with funding from RTO 9 Southeast Ontario Regional Regional Tourism Organization.

“I really want to make it clear that this is my first year of financial support. I want to thank all the donors and the public,” she said.

The darkness of winter has given rise to colorful ideas.

The concept of putting wisdom in an ice block He came to Doset in the summer of 2014. His wife was walking after dinner, and after Christmas, people said they turned off their holiday lights and everything was gray and frustrating. This made people think of an art form that could be seen as they passed by.

After talking to his wife, Dosette discusses how the art work can be done away from home. He immediately ordered an ice block, instructed art to cool down, and New Year’s Day 2015 arrived.

Without thinking much about the process, Dosette admits that he had a lot of problems. They agreed to take the Qatrochichi specialty food to Kingston.

Finally, he placed the ice block in front of the house, looked for a way to light it from the bottom, placed it on a shelf, and covered it with ice to hide the cover.

“We turned on the light and said ‘Wow!’ He said. He was like an angel. [singing]. They see people passing by. 12 I ordered more and it became a big deal. It was so cold that year that it lasted until mid-March. ” In the following winter, Froid’Art became the mainstay of Kingston, bringing local arts into the streets, and warmth, brightness, and color during the harsh months of the year.

And Froid’Art has been around for a number of years, but was canceled last year due to the epidemic.

The organizers were told that they would not be able to hold the event unless they told anyone to do so. ”[It was] Unacceptable: We could not respect artists, we could not tell people where they were. [the ice blocks] They were. So we deleted it last year.

Next year, he hopes the event will take place in person. For now, he says, “People can see Froid’Art any day in any part of the world.”
