artephyshal life

An underwater interactive sound environment where movements of fish in a tank were transformed into a flowing 3D soundscape. The fish were tracked in the tank via a custom built tracking system that comprised a digital video feed, fish tags and AL software developed in the C language. Audio by Barbed.

Artephyshal Life observes the convergence between the natural and the artificial. It reverses the traditional concepts of nature and the machine being at odds.

Exhibited 26 – 30 September 1997 at the OXO Tower, London, UK
