Jellyfish are fascinating creatures already by themselves, even without their rich mythological and psychoanalytic connotations: after all they're one of the oldest species of sea animals in the world. They've always tickled the human imagination with their specific aura of duality: they're creatures both mysteriously beautiful and dangerous. The artist Tina Drčar chose to expand her painted jellyfish into the third dimension, so three pairs of jellyfish will occupy one of the streets in Ljubljana and light the way for the passersby. The installations are created using different materials whose textures and transparencies evoke the impression of jellyfish's fragility and beauty.
