地平線の上を自由に泳ぎまわる魚たち。周囲には、砂と水の起伏がなだらかにつながり合った、曲線だけで構成される有機的な風景が広がっています。それは地球のどこを探しても見つからない未知の景色です。丸みを帯びた透明なドームからドームへ、音もなく出入りする魚の姿は、ガラスの屈折によって瞬間的に消えたり、実際のサイズよりも大きく映し出されたりします。そんな様子にじっくり目を凝らしてみると、生物と環境の関係や個体間の相互関係が、少しずつ見えてくるかもしれません。waterscapeプロジェクトは、鑑賞するためだけではなく、魚たちの生態を観察するためのもの。水中の生きものの生息環境を考え、それにのっとりながら、水槽に秘められた新たな可能性を風景化しました。

Fish swim freely above the horizon in an organic vista consisting exclusively of curves that smoothly connect mounds of sand and water. It is a fascinating scene that can’t be found anywhere else in the world. Swimming silently, fish move from one rounded, transparent dome to another, momentarily seeming to disappear and then reappear larger than their actual size due to the refraction of light through the glass. When you watch carefully, you gradually begin to appreciate the relationship between these creatures and their environment and the relationships between individual fish. The Waterscape project is designed not just for viewing fish, but for observing fish ecology. It creates underwater landscapes that represent the potential of aquariums while taking into consideration and keeping in line with the kind of habitat required by creatures that live underwater.
