Goldfish – they never fail to amuse us with their forgetfulness, ditzy demeanor and most of all, their gleaming, translucent scales.
But it is not only their existence that is fascinating – the Japanese took it to the next level by transforming their (artificial) habitats into works of art as well. Every year at Art Aquarium, the little fishies’ artistic homes will be on display, and this year happens to be Art Aquarium’s 10th anniversary, so the artists went all out with the theme ‘Chou Oiran’ (super courtesan). The whole venue’s atmosphere was created in the image of feudal Japan’s courtesan houses – hence the use of strong red hues in the lighting and architecture – complete with music and sounds from the era.
You may go swim with the fishes from 6th July to 5th September (11am to 9pm daily) in Dōjima River Forum, Osaka, or 8th July to 25th September (11am to 11:30pm daily except for event days) in Nihonbashi Mitsui Hall, Tokyo.
