It’s Friday! You know what that means: it’s time to sit back, kick off your shoes, and get ready for the weekend. To help you get into the mood, we’re going to take a look at some bizarre aquatic art. Grab one of these art pieces to put next to your custom home aquarium and you’ll create a truly unforgettable scene.
I’ll admit that I don’t really get modern fashion. Some of the things you see on the runway are absolutely ludicrous. But I’ve never seen anything quite as eye-catching as artist Charlie Bucket’s glow-in-the-dark dress. It’s made entirely out of plastic tubes with filled with fluorescent water. The tubes are attached to a machine, which pumps out the water to create these strange patterns. It’s pretty stylish, though I’m not sure you could find many ladies willing to carry around a miniature blood transfusion machine.
This colorful sprinkler by Netherlands-based artist Edwin Deen takes a unique approach to aquatic art. The way that water drips down a wall is beautiful, and colors are certainly beautiful, so why not combine the two? The best thing about this sprinkler is that you can paint any room in your house in about 10 seconds flat. I just hope you like rainbow-colored spattered paint.
Deep Sea Angler Lamp
The deep sea angler fish has a tiny light on its head, which it uses to attract potential prey. A deep sea angler lamp seems perfectly logical. Aquascapers unfortunately aren’t able to keep deep sea creatures in their home because of complications with water pressure and because they are sensitive to daylight, so this toothy sculpture is the next best thing. You’d have to be braver than me to set up this thing in your living room. I think it’d give me nightmares.
Ever wonder what a fish sees as a ghostly jellyfish slowly descends upon it, lashing it with its deadly tentacles? Now you don’t have to wonder. This eerie chandelier will cast your living space in a soft, white glow.
Corrie White, a 63-year-old artist from Ontario, created these gorgeous art pieces by dropping water, ink, or cream into an aquarium and photographing the results. She changes the color with a bit of dye and thickens the mixture with gelatin or glycerin. The components are all relatively low-tech, but the resulting art pieces are jaw-dropping.
