Our science have solved a lot of problems to make the impossible possible.
A variety of problems have been solved by our technology which made the impossible possible.
In daily life, we have received benefit from our self-created technologies, but some of which, such as external fertilization and cloning, put a question to us about the meaning of life.
In our lives, we receive benefit from diverse technologies which we ourselves have created, and some of which, such as external fertilization and cloning, are concerned with life ethics.
We could say that civilization and inexhaustible ambition is our very nature.
We could possibly say that civilization and inexhaustible aspiration for progress is our very nature.
However, as a consequence, we may lose things that make us human.
But what is obtained from them might deprive us of things which make us human.
Tomoyuki Baba, the author of this photo-book, uses imagery of living things in an aquarium as motifs to imply the way we are now, and will be in the future.
Whether or not being exposed to struggle for survival is the biggest difference between living things in an aquarium those in the nature.
This point really differentiates the two from each other.
In an aquarium, there are artificial waves, rockwork, and the human as their Creator.
Creatures in an aquarium are brought up surrounded by human-created technologies.
They look almost the same to those living in the nature, but may be becoming quite different beings.
Floating on the other side of the acrylic glass a few decimeters thick, they are as though humans beyond the law of nature.
