Amari was an interactive installation at the Fumbally Exchange in the city centre of Dublin. It was created for the Elemental Exhibition in from September 7th 2015 to September the 18th.

Adventures of Amari is intended for play by two people. One controls the sea and a storm by interacting (read: splashing) in a water filled seascape (read: fish tank), and the second steers a wrecked vessel using ship's wheel. The tiny boat is caught in the middle of the player created storm and the perilous rolling waves.

The combined result of both players was projected onto a suspended sailcloth, and combines elements of shadow puppetry and early 20th century animation. Over the course of the experience, an entire nautical narrative arc unfolds.
