We’ve written before about how goldfish fit into Japanese culture and art. You can catch goldfish at virtually any festival in Japan, and a great many artists dedicate their time to creating beautiful works of art in honor of the small fish.
One group in Japan has devoted their whole existence to goldfish. The group 金魚部, or “Goldfish Club,” turn goldfish into public art in Japanese cities. They take old-fashioned phone booths and convert them into temporary aquariums in which goldfish swim happily while an interested public watches on.
Here are some pictures of their work, taken from their Facebook and Flickr:
