The patterns for the screens were taken from underwater photographs of coral taken by Ruth McDermott when she spent a week with marine biologists working off Lizard Island on the Great Barrier Reef. The installation was designed to enclosed the viewer and create the sense of immersion in the experience.
Materials: consisting of embossed textile screens.
Light source: textile screen incorporated back lighting which changed intensity and colour to reflect the different levels of light seen on the reef.
Size: 6m x 2m
