The dead aquarium

A submerged installation in the largest aquarium of South America located in the São Paulo coast’s Enseada Beach, Guaruja.

The main room of the aquarium has 360° vision. I split it in half. One side remained as a display of marine species such as turtles, fish and shellfish. The other tank displayed a new visual composition with solid waste collected from beaches of the region, creating impactful images for aquarium visitors.
