Aquatypes, the latest creation of the studio, was selected to participate in the European Heritage Days in Bordeaux, september 17th, place Camille Jullian. Presented for the first time in Brazil, this installation invites the public to participate in the creation of a giant aquarium by sending SMS transformed into typographical fishes. Games with syntax and composition give life to typographical fishes with surprising shapes and behaviors.

Throughout the evening, the old church of St. Simeon was adorned with an interactive aquarium fed by public impressions.
Messages projected on the wall were transformed into marine species that began to move in a behaviour of their own. Participants' statements created this giant, living fresco that was both a space for individual expression and a poetic spectacle offering an unusual view on this ancient architecture.
This building which kept its orginal interior decoration is the host of an independant movie theater well known by the inhabitants of Bordeaux.

Marine movements are punctuated by a specific sound environment, created by Splank Studio.
