Liu zhenchen, a French artist who once exhibited a large-scale installation "ice monument" in the square in front of Paris city hall, created a new Marine theme art installation -- "deep blue kaleidoscope series" for this exhibition. This kaleidoscope, composed of 300 lightboxes, looks like human consumption. It is deconstructed and reorganized by the sea, as if it forms a gorgeous picture at the bottom of the sea, and reflects the invasion of human beings to the sea.

Among the thousands of creatures beneath the deep blue is a glass squid with a tunic that looks like a polka dance dress. The beautiful round spots on the tunic give the squid a cartoonish look, adding a touch of color to the serene depths of the ocean.
Volume is a comprehensive CG experimental art film installation about nature, physics, art, and love, inspired by squid by Russian moving image artist Maxim Zhestkov. The film USES pressure and natural forces to control the movement of 2 billion particles to express the relationship between people in society and explore the juxtaposition of emotions and natural laws.

Touching the "Silhouette of the sea" -- the urban deep blue brought by the real image
In addition to the sea world created by multimedia artists, "the silhouette of the sea" also brings a number of authentic images of the ocean and USES a uniquely designed space to show the space, creatures and natural forces beneath the sea level. Create an opportunity for the audience to dive into the deep blue in the city. The diving process is completed by visual and tactile sense, which arouses people's endless imagination of the sea world.
These works come from both professional diving photographers at home and abroad and ordinary divers. Whether it's underwater icebergs, giant underwater objects, magnificent creatures, and fish, or just gazing at the sea, these images captured from different areas of the ocean reflect the contradictory and harmonious relationship between humans and the ocean. From these records, people can get fragments of information about the ocean, which can be combined into a self-knowledge "Silhouette of the sea".
