Mauri is an immersive work using projectors to create an underwater digital environment that reflects the sights and sounds of a fish trap.
Two walls are projected with an underwater seascape which when coupled with the soundtrack gives the visitor a really good impression of what it is like to be underwater.
The work incorporates a fully interactive floor with various small fish, turtles, sting rays and sharks. When someone walks within the work the fish on the floor will part and move away just like in real life.
Children and adults can interact with schools of animated fish that respond to their movement, and, by working together, they can gather them into the trap projected onto the floor. Once every 5 minutes any fish herded into the trap will be held while the tide is low. The tide loops even five minutes so the fish are caught in the trap every 5 minutes.
