Steam Ring Generator

When BIG’s proposal for Amager Bakke, a plant that transforms waste into energy, located in Copenhagen, was released in 2011, many were skeptical about the project. Is it really possible to create a roof accessible to the public in an industrial building? Will they be able to make the plant’s chimney give off giant smoke rings (or rather, steam)? The idea seemed too good to be true.

Drawhearts eternally repeats the act of steaming up a pane of glass and lining out a heart, slowly fading away each time. A pulley system freely moves the body of the machine across the pane of glass, with its main part consisting of a miniature fog machine to steam up the glass and an articulated drawing arm.
