Creatures

Creatures is an interactive installation that simulates the appearance of life and explores individual and emergent group behaviors in the context of an artists interpretation of a coral reef.

Fifteen identical creatures live in a fabricated "reef" ecosystem. Undisturbed, they communicate colorfully, their messages rippling across the colony. If you touch one it alerts the group by recoiling and flashing a deep red, sacrificing itself while the others hide themselves in blue.
