"Fantas Aquarium" Using Projected Images (Japan)
Seiko Epson has been bringing the Fantas Aquarium to hospitals and special-needs schools around Japan since 2015. In FY2019, the company staged these projection-based productions at 17 locations nationwide, welcoming 7,341 visitors. The shows are set up and run with the help of employee volunteers, a total of 181 in 2019. The company encourages and supports volunteers by providing paid time off.
Hospital and school staff members, as well as members of the children’s families, often report that children are stimulated by and respond positively to the Fantas Aquarium. Even children who normally sleep all day will suddenly open their eyes to follow images or will reach out to try to touch them, their faces lit up in wonder. Children who are normally confined to a hospital room will shriek with delight at the prospect of an outing beyond their door.
Seiko Epson will take the Fantas Aquarium on the road once again in 2020.
