We explored the possibility of using ambient auditory display in the context of sonification of water toxicity. We looked at the existing work procedures carried out in an aquatic toxicity laboratory and developed a design that could replace or complement existing periodic visual monitoring of samples. The design was further developed as an art-science installation in a public exhibition in the Science Gallery in Dublin, Ireland, where visitors experienced through hearing the life and death of small aquatic crustaceans in real-time.
