Opening in May 2015, the Stewardship Center will help orient visitors in their explorations of the beaches and marshes of this Brookhaven Town Preserve in Mount Sinai Harbor, NY. Protozone has been commisssioned to design and implement software, video, trail signs, murals, models and more . . . (nearing completion)

  MARSH and BEACH touch-screen software installations are virtual travels through the habitats of Mount Sinai Harbor offering dozens of activites for visitors of all ages. Navigable landscapes, drawing apps, puzzles, field guides, videos, animations, sounds and menus provide paths for further exploration.


AQUA POOL touch-screen kiosks are set against an underwater mural wrapping around the room. The software puts visitors at the controls of an imaginary submarine navigating the waters of the harbor and Long Island Sound. Dozens of animating species swim through an endless panorama with seaweeds waving in the gentle waves, crabs scurrying across the sea bottom, and occasional treasures to be found. A pop-up Fish-Mix lets visitors add their own mashups to the scene. A scavanger hunt challenges kids to find as many species as they can tap in a minute. Every touch identifies a species and adds it to a growing collection which can be "sorted" in a variety of ways. A 360 degree view of Mount Sinai Harbor passes by above the waterline. Aqua Pool isconstantly evolving and is running in several places (including a children's hospital in Salisbury, England) . . . all with different views and an ever-changing collection of species.
