Aquarium is my second favorite spot when I have no where to go (art gallery goes first lol), and among all the fascinating marine creatures, Iā€™m most interested in luminous jellyfish. For this design and fabrication project, I used light blue luminous transparent acrylic to make the jellyfish aquarium. The luminous feature of this kind of acrylic allows the engraved part/edge of it to be lit up when there's light attached.
I illustrated jellyfish and small bubbles in illustrator and used laser cutter to engrave them separately on eight different acrylic sheets. Instead of glue sheets together, I found it a better way to give space among each sheet and place it on a transparent base so that the sheets could be as vertical and elegant as possible.
