Fig.: Improvising fish
Ekkofisk is a realtime organic-digital sound installation.
"Finally fish get a chance to express their suppressed musicality - through their expressive flowing movements they get a voice to share their sad duet.
By a video-based three-dimensional
tracking system, computers continuously extract the individual xyz coordinates
of two fish in a large tank.
(Mithassel and Lossius)

It might be interesting in this context to compare Mithassel's and Lossius' fish installation to a series of designs by another artist: the Barcelona based designer Marti Giuxé.
