Jellyfish have existed on our planet for at least 500 million years, making them much older than the dinosaurs. Today there are approximately 4000 known species of Jellyfish drifting along ocean currents around the globe. Ample Projects’ Jellyfish Bloom installation is an exploration of these surprisingly complex and beautiful sea creatures, and the important role they play within the ecosystems of our planet’s oceans.
In recent times Scientist have observed huge increases in jellyfish populations, which is believed by many marine ecologists to be the result of humanity’s impact on the marine environment. Jellyfish Bloom places the viewer within a forest of tentacles. As the Jellyfish respond to our presence, we are reminded of how we affect the world’s ecosystems, and that Jellyfish Blooms are a result of these changes to the oceans of our planet.
