The artwork Reefs on the Edge was designed by Caitilin de Bérigny, and built by artists and designers: Phillip Gough and Adityo Pratomo, who designed and built the TUI objects and table; Ge Wu, who edited the multiple-channel video installation; and Michael Bates, who created the soundscape.
Reefs on the Edge is a trans-media artwork that explores how coral reef habitats and ecosystems are threatened by the effects of climate change. The artwork Reefs on the Edge was designed, led and directed by Caitilin de Bérigny: Phillip Gough and Adityo Pratomo, designed and built the TUI objects and table; Ge Wu, edited the multiple-channel video installation; and Michael Bates, created the soundscape. The artwork was a collaboration with Dr Erica Woolsey, a marine Biology who studied the long term effects of raises in sea temperature on coral embryos.
