Adrian Fish: The Aquaphilia Project

When: Oct. 14-25 2014

The third iteration of The Aquaphilia Project documents the behind-the-scenes machinations of the Georgia Aquarium—the world’s second largest by volume, located in Atlanta, Georgia. Through increasingly advanced technologies, the consequence of sustained attempts at transfixing attention is not only confusion between what is real versus what is convincingly represented, but also our preference for and addiction to illusion. By attempting to convincingly represent a ‘natural’ ecosystem, the simulacrum lies within aquarium-goers who, by virtue of paying admission, tacitly support an easily digested model of reality.
