Once the fishes are dead or bought, this aquarium will have one less exhibit. Aquariums give us a chance to admire sea creatures in their natural environment, a world inaccessible to most. However, as the apex predator of the planet, we demand control of every aspect of our living environment.
This aquarium demystifies the underwater world by revealing the candid economical relationship we have with aquatic animals. Humans have infiltrated and commodified everything in the sea. After its initial installation, this is a journey through a miniature economy that confronts ourselves with an uncomfortable truth of our impact on earth.
