    via http://www.myeongbeomkim.com/ Great aquarium idea utilizing a large lightbulb. Not very practical though.

    Polar Bears And Spaceships: Myeongbeom Kim

  • Eleanor Thorne

    While we've all seen surreal sculptures before, we'd put money on the fact that you've never seen quite anything like this. There's something so wonderfully simple yet striking about Myeongbeom Kim's sculptures and art installations that you're just compelled to sit back and stare. Looking through his work, what makes it all so striking and surreal is that Kim combines man-made elements with natural ones in a way that really makes you stop and think. A tree hanging by helium balloons? Goldfish swimming in a lightbulb? Who could have thought up such strange combinations and what is he trying to communicate through his work? (Hint: It's, generally, about breathing life into inanimate objects.) Update: We got in touch with Kim to ask him for a statement. "I try to examine how my surroundings are perceived and remembered. To do this, I listen to a whisper from the objects within my surroundings. I attempt to have an intimate, private dialogue with the world, trying to concretely present…

    Goldfish are feeder fish and don't have that long to live. The ones you see at Petco and Walmart aren't taken as good care of like the other more expensive fishes are. The point is whether these 10 cent fish die being fed alive to other animal (which is most of their fate)or dies after this art show the artist bought these fishes more time than usual because they are feeder fishes! Get over yourselves its no like hes putting endangered specie in there, if you don't like it then keep on scrolling down the page!

    Neither Guppies nor Goldfish are merely feeder fish, and for the record, both species are rather long lived when taken care of. Are they endangered? No, they're not, but that doesn't mean they don't have the right to a decent life with decent care given them. Treating living things as disposable says quite a lot to a person's character. That all said, the lightbulb sculpture itself is gorgeous, I like the lines of it with the inner piece. I'd just enjoy it much more without the fishes inside it.

    Uhm, animal lover speaking here, and guppies are DUMB. Yeah, that's right, I said it. Does it mean they should be tortured? no, but you people are just assuming that the fish aren't being fed or are horribly uncomfortable. Maybe the artist put a hole in the top to feed the fish? It looks like its about the size of a fishbowl that any normal person keeps a fish or a beta in, so just because its art it becomes cruel? Read the news, there's a lot more going on than guppies being kept in a tank. And who said anything about them being disposable? for all you know these guppies are the artists kids beloved pets being temporarily used for an exhibit, soon to return to their home.
