A tranquil pool containing fish and plants is projected onto the floor.
When the participants discover the pool, they see mostly fish but few plants,
because the fish are the plants' predator. When the participants
enter, the fish, mysteriously attracted to the participants,
playfully swarm around their feet. Because the fish are distracted from
eating, the plants are then able to bloom. Most people imagine that
ecosystem disruption means the destruction
of a specie(s).
However, as this project illustrates, a counter-intuitive effect of ecosystem
disruption is often that one species is suddenly increased
population due to a predator displacement.
