Museum of Marine Life 2119 at NTU ADM Portfolio

Museum of Marine Life 2119 (MML) is a metaphorical visualisation of a probable future, of the lethal effects of the Anthropocene. MML sets its stage in 2119 when marine creatures are extinct and a marine biologist decides to build a series of nostalgic chimerical specimens, a tribute to vanished life forms in the form of a menagerie of kinetic sculptures. We follow the perspective of the marine biologist as he/she can only rely on intangible human recollections and no artefacts of the defunct phylum.
