DISCOVER THE SMILE FOUNDATION commissioned us to develop interactive artworks in the public spaces of Schneider Children's Hospital - part of the North Shore-Long Island Jewish (LIJ) Health System. The objective of Discover the Smile Foundation, Inc. is to transform children's healthcare facilities into magical, child-friendly environments, creating atmospheres that put smiles on young faces to help relieve some of the emotional stress of hospital visits for children and their families, and to positively impact the outcome of treatment.

AQUA CIRCUS is an interactive virtual aquarium.
Two eight foot high two foot square tanks house
assorted creatures and special effects that children
can set in motion revealing some principles of
animal locomotion and mechanization.
