The Cassini Portal offers a unique look…
How did you get this idea?
The five senses exploring the world around it. Unknowingly, these experiences create sparks that swirl and twirl in the mind. As these sparks accumulate, they start forming together that begins to resemble something. Once the mind realizes it has a thought, it focuses on it, drawing in more sparks that eventually illuminates into a new idea!
This sculpture is built by using multiple 300 lbs ice blocks and then carved using chainsaws, grinders, and chisels. These slow-melting ice blocks are made from machines that remove the air bubbles, resulting in crystal clear ice. Watch as these winter diamonds are transformed from skilled artist and then continues to be shaped by nature as it slowly returns back to Earth.
