Goldfish are a big source of inspiration for the Japanese, but art collective Kingyobu has taken that inspiration to the next level. The group has installed goldfish tank phone booths on the streets of Osaka, making for quite the interesting sight. The cord of the phone floats about in the water, while dozens of goldfish swim around in the booth. The installations are visually intriguing, although there’s no apparent reason as to why they are there in the first place.
