The Fossil Aquarium
Single channel video, Stereo
The story tells of a lady who went to the aquarium full of curiosity, only to meet a tour guide who was continually complaining. The tour guide just barreled on like a freight train, reminiscing about the aquarium’s glory days, making fun of how awkward and embarrassing the sea life is, then cursing the head of the aquarium and lamenting that the tourists weren’t afraid of the shark. The tour guide seemed to be completely uninterested in seriously guiding tours. At one time, this had been the royal palace aquarium; now, there was only a single shark. That’s why the tour guide straight out told the lady there was nothing good to see here.
