Flotsam & Jetsam

The sea has been a focus for artists, poets, lovers, fishermen, scientists and explorers through the centuries. Flotsam and Jetsam provides visitors exploring the Sydney Aquarium with an intimate audio journey of stories and anecdotes of the contrasting and at times conflicting perspectives of the ocean. Similar to holding a shell to your ear to hear the sounds of the ocean, the installation gives a detailed insight into Sydney Harbour. Visitors were provided with a piece of wearable art – a customised head-piece, that provided an audio experience as they move through the aquarium, observing the colourful and charismatic sea creatures.
