Éden Peretta: Do Not Feed the Fish

Video installation of Do Not Feed the Fish in Brazil.

Do Not Feed the Fish

The video installation Do Not Feed the Fish reframes different urban spaces such as windows, doors, and fountains, turning them into an "aquarium" where strange fish perform their dances. It seeks to problematize the rhythm of our lives by disrupting our daily perception of time and space. Who is the captive one, after all?
