Residents of Liverpool, England must have been surprised and confused when, last month, as the evening set in, the shutters of an old derelict building autonomously opened, emanating a bluish glow onto the street. What was revealed behind the old garage door was a space completely taken over by a large fish tank filled with jellyfish peacefully floating and hovering in the gentle blue water.

This secret magical window, which only opens at night is, in fact, a large-scale, site-specific art installation by the artist duo Walter Hugo & Zoniel. “The psychedelic display is intended to have a discordant presence within the building and to intrigue those in the surrounding area,” says Gazelli Art House, who are not only supporting the project but are live-streaming a video from within the tank and into their gallery space in London some 200 miles away. The projection is viewable both from within the gallery but also from the street outside, creating a virtual corridor between the two cities.

The project, which is titled “The Physical Possibility of Inspiring Imagination in the Mind of Somebody Living” is up until July 27, 2014 at 53 High Park Street in Liverpool. You can also purchase digital versions of the artwork right here. (via designboom)

Photographer Alexander Semenov (previously) who is well known for his documentation of oceanic wildlife, recently turned his camera upward and captured some fascinating photographs of jellyfish against the clouds and various sunsets. In some instances the water was so clear appears as if the animals are practically hovering in the sky. See much more over on Flickr.

Underwater Experiments Continued: Wonderful New Photos of Jellyfish by Alexander Semenov

August 26, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Since first covering the photography of Russian biologist Alexander Semenov (previously) back in January his self-directed “Underwater Experiments” series has continued unabated as he releases other-worldy shots of the Earth’s most elusive creatures almost daily. Again and again Semenov captures some of the most jaw-dropping photographs of underwater life I’ve ever seen, most frequently an animal called lion’s mane jellyfish (Cyanea capillata) which is the largest known species of jellyfish in the world. What you see here only scratches the surface of his work over the last couple of months, definitely urge you to get lost in his underwater gallery.
