Vincent J.F. Huang – Atlantis Project, 2012

The Atlantis Project uses an aquarium tank to house coral reefs growing on miniature sculptures of iconic landmarks of civilized and capitalist society. With the concept of creating a modern day Atlantis city, where all that is known to civilized mankind will be flooded over by the rising sea levels. Under the microcosm of the aquarium, the project wishes to show metaphorically the limitations of Mother Earth’s resources. As a subset of the Earth’s vast system, the human behavior of unrelentingly seeking for infinite growth will inevitably lead to extinction.
Symbols of proud and self-indulgent modern civilization are violently sunk underwater in this eco art installation. The installation is documented on 3 photographs.

Vincent J.F. Huang, born in 1971 in Taiwan, lives and works in Taipei and Shanghai.
