Visual Magnetics at Design Miami/ with Coral Morphologic


Visual Magnetics at Design Miami/ with Coral Morphologic

Occuring alongside the Art Basel festival, Design Miami/  is one of the world's premiere design events for curators, collectors, artists, gallerists, designers and critics. Coral Morphologic's Design Miami/ Design Curio concept, 'Coral Therapy,' was a 360-degree virtual reality film experienced via the Oculus Rift headset that transported viewers to a cosmic coral universe filled with fluorescent sea anemones.


To create an immersive feeling in the gallery, Coral Morphologic collaborated with Visual Magnetics. Using our magnetic receptive print media, graphics of the man-o-war and brain coral were overlayed with InvisiLock® mounted zoanthid soft coral prints, bringing the space to life and elevating the Coral Therapy experience. It was one of the most exciting uses of our Dynamic Spaces concept that we've seen yet. 



We were so honored to be part of this captivating project - one of the highlights of Design Miami/ as noted by Miami New Times, the Miami Herald and Art Net

About Coral Morphologic 
Coral Morphologic is a Miami-based art-science endeavor founded by Colin Foord and Jared McKay in 2007. Together they present coral reef organisms as archetypal life-forms via film, photography, site-specific installations, and multimedia artworks. Technological advances in the new millennium have enabled Coral Morphologic to explore a new frontier in the aesthetic interpretation of nature. In doing so, they have discovered corals to be the living embodiment of science and art converged. The combination of vibrant colors, fluid movement, geometric tessellation, and limestone architecture establish corals as the irrefutable icons of 21st century Miami.
