The Disappearing Art Gallery.

The fish stocks of many species have dwindled to dangerously low numbers over the last few decades. Continuous overfishing combined with the many years some of these species need to reach maturity means they simply cannot recover.

We created a travelling art exhibition to explain that it takes many years for fish to develop to fully grown adults capable of reproducing and replenishing fish stocks. Each artwork was of an unfinished fish, completed only to the percentage of the estimated numbers left of their specie.

When viewed through a device (smart phone or tablet) the fish were painted to completion, with a counter counting the years it would take to restore these stocks to sustainable levels.
