Jelly Swarm

After two months of designing, coding and fabrication, and three long nights at the Vancouver Aquarium, our latest interactive artwork, Jelly Swarm is finally installed. Created in collaboration with origami artist, Joseph Wu, it’s a semi-permanent piece for the Aquarium’s Luminescence event.

Conceived as an interpretation of luminescent jellies behaviour, Jelly Swarm features 94 origami jellies with LED modules inside hanging from a custom designed structure. A touch screen panel allows visitors to affect light and colour patterns.

We’re delighted to have been given the opportunity by the Vancouver Aquarium to create Jelly Swarm and grateful for all their help realizing the project.
