In contrary to a linear video screening, an interactive installation adds layers of narration. The fully evolved project Noise Aquarium offers the participant the possibility to interact with the projection. This is an opportunity to let the recipients of the project experience the effects of noise and sound on the organisms at first place and more directly. There is a 3D-stereoscopic and a 2D version that we install depending on the technical possibilities of the venues.  In both versions the participant balances on a platform – out of balance creates underwater noises and when s/he is fully centered the plankton (bottom of the food chain) appear and we hear whale songs (top of the food chain).


In order to present the project in as many places as possible, we have an version that is linear and plays as a video art loop. This allows us to highlight the importance of plankton, plastics and noise pollution in many environments.
