At the international figure skating competition 2012 NHK Trophy, the
skating rink itself formed the canvas for projections. Junior skaters
from local areas gave a performance called ARIGATO SKATING-A Skating
“Thank You! from Tohoku”, for which a new performance was created
matching the skating with images. Through the skillful combination of
cameras and projectors, a fantasy world unfolded as flowers seemed to
bloom on the ice beneath the gliding blades of the skating children.
