The Aquaphilia Project (Part III)

Adrian Fish

The Aquaphilia Project investigates large-scale water-themed recreational sites around the world. The third iteration of the project documents the behind-the-scenes machinations of the second-largest aquarium in the world: the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta. Aquarium visitors experience the simulacrum of an easily-digested model of reality, as increasingly advanced technologies result in confusion between what is real versus what is convincingly represented as a “natural” ecosystem.
