THEATER OF LOST SPECIES (INVITED PROJECT)
Through cone-shaped viewfinders on an anemone-like sculpture, visitors will find themselves interacting with a virtual ecology of extinct marine species that playfully respond to viewers’ motions. In the evening the sky-blue sculpture will glow and pulsate in cadence with both the city and the sea.
