MIT 150 celebrates past innovation and achievement, while acting as a catalyst for the next generation. In this spirit, IceWall plants a new future, even as its own seemingly fades away during the Festival of Art, Science and Technology. The installation consists of blocks of ice stacked on each other, creating one continuous surface facing the Charles River. Each block has flower seeds frozen inside, visible during the Festival. As FAST concludes and Icewall melts away, the seeds are left behind in the ground. As the seeds germinate and bloom, the installation will continue to celebrate the sesquicentennial in the spring.
