At the moment (spring 2018), as a sort of hobby project, I’m developing mermaid aquariums and other creature vivariums for sale or loan. I created this one with the help of craftsman Alfred Chow, and the expert dance work of Rosa Cisneros, both of whom I highly recommend working with if you get the chance.
Behind a diffusing screen, a low res LED panel is running videos off a Raspberry Pi. It shows a mermaid swimming gently around her tank. The tank draws power from the mains and the components aren’t heavy – it can easily be lifted up and moved around.
Many configurations, materials and images are possible, so get in touch if you’d like to talk about these.
