‘A Human Aquarium’ its an video installation or a recreation of an aquarium where the only animals that live inside the fish tank is a human being. In this case, the creator of the piece, myself, representing different kinds of marine animals. The film could be seen as activism for animal rights.
The basic premise of the piece is the idea or notion of a Fish Tank or Aquarium. But instead of fish or marine mammals and other species I want to portray swimming humans. I always wanted a fish tank and I think aesthetically they look very pretty. But the trapped fish and marine mammals look so sad in there, not to mention the cruelty of the way they’re
treated. Why do we go to aquariums to see animals swimming around us without their permission if we can portray humans instead.
No animals were harmed during the creation of this film.
