Golden Solution developed ‘Shower Party’ for the 2014 Nextwave festival in Melbourne. Partygoers and a goldfish were combined into a symbiotic ecosystem, where drinks consumed by patrons drained the fishes tank by an equal amount. Meanwhile the movement of the fish distorted the sound track heard by party goers. Over three hours, an exploration of the tragedy of the commons unfolded. Would party goers destroy the fishes environment for their own personal inebriation?
I developed software for drink dispensing, fish detecting and tank draining. When networked together, these components formed a simulated ecosystem.

Hi! Subconsciously you already know this, but let's make it obvious. Hopefully this article was helpful. You might also find yourself following a link to Amazon to learn more about parts or equipment. If you end up placing an order, I make a couple of dollarydoos. We aren't talking a rapper lifestyle of supercars and yachts, but it does help pay for the stuff you see here. So to everyone that supports this place - thank you.
