Jellyfish Tank In An Abandoned Building

Uh oh. There’s been a change in the “Coolest Things to Ever Come Out of Liverpool, England” list. Sure the Beatles had a nice 50-year run, but we just found something better: a jellyfish tank in an abandoned building.

Yes, walk past 53 High Park Street at night and you’ll see the building’s metal shutters creak open to reveal a huge glowing blue tank of live jellyfish. It’s totally out of place and it’s totally wonderful. It’s also a large-scale, site-specific art installation by the artist duo Walter Hugo & Zoniel. It’s meant to “have a discordant presence within the building and to intrigue those in the surrounding area,” (aka, freak people the hell out) says Gazelli Art House in London, where a live video stream of the tank is being beamed to. Somebody break the news gently to Paul and Ringo.
