In Japan, goldfish have long been viewed as symbols of happiness, prosperity, and good luck. Kansai-based art collective Kingyobu – which roughly translates to ‘goldfish club’ in English – spread good fortune across Osaka by converting old phone booths into aquariums filled with water, bubblers and hundreds of living goldfish. The group, five students at Kyoto University of Art and Design, created the installations as part of Canvas Project, an outdoor art festival. The booths were retrofitted with waterproof materials, including lights at the top to illuminate the swimming fish. As for the phones, they were left to float aimlessly amid the aquatic life, preserving a bit of history within the oddity.
