Bubble Tank

October 9, 2011

Christopher Jobson

The Bubble Tank by Richard Bell, Thomas McKeown and David Powell of Psalt Design is made to look as if the aquarium is moments from precariously dripping off the edge of a counter top. An alternative name could be the Anxiety Tank. (via juxtapoz)

Goldfish Orchestra

September 8, 2011

Quintetto is a music installation by the Italian artist collective Quiet Ensemble that tracks the movement of fish in five vertical tanks and translates their movements into audio.

“Quintetto” is an installation based on the study of casual movement of objects or living creatures used as input for the production of sounds. The basic concept is to reveal what we call “invisible concerts” of everyday life.
 The vertical movements of the 5 fishes in the aquariums is captured by a videocamera, that translates (through a computer software) their movements in digital sound signals.
We’ll have 5 different musical instruments creating a totally unexpected live concert.

Really lovely work. If you liked this, see also the sewing machine orchestra. (thnx, bernardo!)

Currency Koi

Good lord isn’t this little koi amazing? It’s amazing. Look at all those teeny tiny scaly folds! It originally appeared on the tumblelog of Mizu Kami and was subsequently reblogged about a billion times, but I don’t think he’s the artist. I bet the instructions would require 100 times the amount of paper. (via fasels suppe)

Update: It turns out that Mizu Kami did in fact fold the Koi, and the design is by Won Park. (thnx mizu & caitlin!)

Creepy Stuff from Celia Marais

November 24, 2010

Christopher Jobson

For her series titled Field Excursion artist Celia Marais constructed these other-worldly organisms out of actual meat and fish—I can almost see the slime dripping down my monitor. Some of the creepy crawly things were then modeled and animated for use on Amon Tobin’s web site (previously). Prints available via The Beholder.
