What was once a giant oil-drum, designed to tank millions of gallons of black gold for Chinese consumers, is now a giant museum. It's recently been kitted out by design artists teamLab, a collective of ultra-modern creative innovators. Universe of Water Particles opened on the 23rd of March, and wowed visitors within moments. In other areas, an exhibition called Under Construction features works by Chinese artists including Zeng Fanzhi, Ding Yi, and Yang Fudong. There's also an intriguingly titled section named Sometimes you wonder, in an interconnected universe, who is dreaming who? This philosophical and thought provoking work is by Adrian Villar Rojas.
The total TANK Shanghai museum is made up of five whole oil-tanks. They were the acquisition of Qiao Zhibing, who bought them from the local Hongqiao International Airport. This fabulous and truly inspirational display of adaptive and interactive art really shows us how sustainability can be a continual work in progress. It's anyone's best guess as to what to do with all the things we no longer need, however with a bit of creative ingenuity we can solve problems and create worthwhile experiences for all people.
