Underwater Flight

Multidisciplinary artist Sayuri Sasaki Hemann is inspired by the way light refects her medium, which in this case is light and airy organza. This ethereal jellyfish aquarium, titled Underwater Flight, is displayed at Portland International Airport. Sayuri likes to find displaced items in unusual spaces and has been placing these urban aquariums all over Portland since 2009.

    Love them! Hope they move like the real jellies. One of my favorite things at aquariums. So graceful and hypnotic.

  23. I like the jelly fish, only watching them of course, but I find it a bit too magical, these pastel colors. They are magical creatures. But there is something dark about them and their magical nature if you ask me.

    Still love the idea, to place art in unseen places.
