Marpi Studio (PL)
Aquarium presents an interactive simulation heavily inspired by the underwater world. With the help of the artificial intelligence the projects tries to find a way of making the picture surprise its very own creator. This never-ending and constantly evolving project uses an application based on the Machine Learning method. It gradually adapts to people interacting with it, trying to react and respond to everyone around. The main idea of the installation is the concept of a reverse aquarium. From the perspective of a pet fish it shows festival audience how it feels when a huge alien creature tries to communicate and play with them. Two hours of original music were composed to measure; it was divided into small pieces that are subsequently mixed back together based on the activity of the audience. In this way, everyone can compose their own audio-visual show. The visuality of the Aquarium is based on the beauty of the evolution with lots of mesmerizing and hypnotically exotic representatives of both fauna and flora.
