Utilizing audio effects to add realism and motion to an otherwise static artificial environment, customized soundscapes
offer non-directional, ambient background effects throughout the display corridor. One side of the display was designed
as a coastal scene, the other as a rainforest canopy. The audio is low-key texture effect complementing the exhibit
décor, while highlighting five key sculptural displays triggered at random, through the use of microwave motion sensors,
airport passengers enable the effects as they move alongside the display. Animal and insect sounds combine with
ocean and surf effects, creating a total experiential habitat. The system is designed to cycle through to completion
within a twenty-minute period and then go into rest mode until triggered again. Additionally, the system incorporates an
automatic emergency override tied to the airport paging system.
