Works : Schooling (with Michael Awad) (2013)
public art commissioned by Ripley's Aquarium of Canada






Schooling transforms the lobby space of Ripley's Aquarium in Toronto into a huge aquarium tank, with fish soaring over the heads of its visitors. The artists use the structure of a conventional mobile animated by a cascade of 62 motors to represent the complex, unpredictable movement of fish as they group and scatter.
