Paseo Festival & Ars Electronica Festival

Noise Aquarium utilizes 3D-scans of these micro creatures obtained with unique scientific imaging techniques immersing the audience in a 3D ‘aquarium’ of diverse planktons projected as large as whales. Participants create destructive visual and audio noise by their presence alone as we are all implicated by our inaction.

Noise Aquarium at I love life: Celebrating Biodiversity through Art and Science

Noise Aquarium was proud part of the two day mini-symposium  ‘ I love life: Celebrating Biodiversity through Art and Science’. The gathering explored art, science, and community issues. Guests and local experts and musicians joined the vivid conversations.  Besides noise pollution in the oceans the topics were ‘The Universe as Operating System’, ‘The Origins of Life’, and ‘New Mexican History through DNA’. The event was hosted by the Santa Fe Art Institute.

Symposium Programme

Noise Aquarium @ TEDx Manhattan Beach

Artist Victoria Vesna of UCLA Art Sci Center, in collaboration with Dr. Alfred Vendl and Martina Fröschl, of the Scientific Visualization department at the Academy of Applied Arts, Vienna, bring Noise Aquarium to TEDxMB. Noise Aquarium draws our guests’ attention to unnatural noise in the oceans on plankton, one of the primary building blocks of the marine food chain and a crucial component of the Earth’s ecosystem. By showing disturbance through noise pressure waves, this intriguing video of accurate 3D-models is a vital resource for scientific and artistic research. Immerse yourself in our Noise Aquarium video lounge!
