Do you remember snow - music cassette cases sculpture by Dominik Jais

Do you remember snow

"(How) Do you remember snow" is about how I remember snow.
"Do you remember snow" is about recycling materials used in media.

The sculpture is made of MC cases. 4 of these cases holding image foil prints with a paper background. The prints can be exchanged.

A sonar sensor tracks the distance of the viewer to the sculpture and brings up LEDs behind the MC cases while the viewer comes closer to the sculpture. Once the viewer is very close all LEDs are up and the viewer can see all 4 images.
The sculpture is a kind of photo frame which only uses up power when someone really views it.
