A garden for fish. A garden for humans. A garden for both. A place for each to face the other at eye level. There is no up and down. There is no in between. There is no inside and outside. It is a spectacle, a garden spectacle, made possible with a glass cylinder, open at the bottom and standing free in the pool. The fish is damned to live underwater, but maybe it will swim above the water; it will take a risk to look up and to discover the garden designed around it. It has the possibility to swim into the cylinder, following the warm water up. Fish and human exchange glances, meeting at eye level. Fish, Human, Nature, on par with each other.
