I built an immersive steel aquarium sculpture installation portraying French marine biologist Jeanne Villepreux-Power. She made the first aquarium and discovered the Paper Nautilus mollusks secrete liquid to heal its shell when it breaks. After stepping thru a portal, people experience her discoveries, her challenges, and also hear perspectives via various visual media reflecting thoughts from different time periods that are projecting on the floor and four walls surrounding those inside this 360° Surround aquatic environment.
