The Bubble Tank by Richard Bell, Thomas McKeown and David Powell of Psalt Design is made to look as if the aquarium is moments from precariously dripping off the edge of a counter top. An alternative name could be the Anxiety Tank. (via juxtapoz)
“Quintetto” is an installation based on the study of casual movement of objects or living creatures used as input for the production of sounds. The basic concept is to reveal what we call “invisible concerts” of everyday life. The vertical movements of the 5 fishes in the aquariums is captured by a videocamera, that translates (through a computer software) their movements in digital sound signals. We’ll have 5 different musical instruments creating a totally unexpected live concert.
Really lovely work. If you liked this, see also the sewing machine orchestra. (thnx, bernardo!)
