Icemelt is a multimedia art work by Mark Beasley, illustrating a battery's life by a melting ice cube.
ICEMELT is an arduino and CRT monitor powered off of a 12vdc car battery. The arudino measures the voltage of the battery as it entropies and draws a corresponding ice cube on the CRT. As the battery dies the ice cube melts until the battery looses the capacity to power either device. (Duration 4-8 hours)
