Most recently 'ENKI Experiment 3' was commissioned by Arts Catalyst for the show Interspecies.

Above: The fish and human are isolated in separate rooms - they communicate through the ENKI system which translates human biophysical changes into information the fish can understand - making cross species interaction possible. A 4 x 8m structure consisting of two compartments. This box like construction represents an 'Operant Chamber' (a soundproof chamber, to observe, manipulate, and record the behavior of animals). Divided into two internal rooms, [A] is sound proofed for the human and [B] for the fish, contains the tank, and is lined with material that will shield the experiment from electronic interference & sound. A small window allows a view through to each of the chambers. A desk out side is used for monitoring the experiment.
