The Aquarium," was filmed in high-definition video in Alaska, Mystic, CT, and New York City. The video contrasts the views of the Arctic landscape with the claustrophobia of captured sea mammals living in aquariums. Even as these artificial environments give safe haven to endangered animals andoffer visitors a mesmerizing glimpse of the marine life. « The Aquarium » looks beyond the spectacle to the reality of progressive destruction of these animals' very habitat. It is not simply an environmental critique, However; rather, the video assumes an attitude of wonder towards its magnificent subjects: the animals, the landscape, the human observers, and the artificial environments they have created in order to domesticate nature.
