Behind each of the four sections sits a rear projector that displays images on the acrylic. Water cascades down the acrylic faces to enhance the sub-sea ocean scene that is projected on each wall. The Vquarium debuted with the opening of the complex on 1 June 2009 with larger than life mermaids that swim onscreen and into the distance at the end of the short show. The mermaid show was conceived and executed by Falcon’s Treehouse.
A second installation(The Bubble Foundation) designed to enhance the environment of the retail area features a large water sphere. The finished sphere measures 8 feet (2.4 m) in diameter. A hole in the top of the sphere allows water to be pumped through the inside of the sphere and bubble out the top before gently cascading evenly down the sides of the globe into the catch pool below.
