An ice sculpture to show the effect that alcohol can have on an individuals self-confidence. Originally intended to be a large ice sculpture infused with alcohol to give off a strong scent in a public place, this video was a showcase of its potential. The video makes use of hydrochromic ink, when this ink is dry it is opaque and as it is wet becomes transparent. The idea here is that as a persons confidence melts away, other more negative emotions start to emerge, this is shown by the ice melting which reveals some possible thought and feelings of a person who has been drinking too much.
