John Leung’s Magic Carp-pet (2010)

Winner of RedDot design award, John Leung’s Magic Carp-pet is a moire pattern printed half on a rug and half on a glass-topped coffee table that animates a school of carp swimming as you walk around the table. Basically, it’s a novel large-scale scanimation piece. The videos below show both the mock-up and the actual demo version. I wonder how it would look in a regular domestic setting.
