ICARE IN SITU is an adaptation of the myth of Icarus from Ovid’s Metamorphoses.
It’s a multimedia sculptural transcription of this myth, by Thomas Sillard.

The Icarus story as an allegory of the various struggles that we must take to survive. How an utopia born a concrete form, the stubborn pursuit of a fixed idea, the realization of a dream, euphoria blinding.
This is a kinetic work, plastic, digital and interactive, a dive into the myth, an inner journey, leaving the discovery experience.
