A distinctive, dialogue-free flat colour short by Luke Saunders. To wit:

The Fisherman is set in a neo-tokyo cityscape where electricity is a source of life for a diverse eco-system of mollusc like creatures. A late devoted scientist of these life forms has passed his life’s work on to his daughter, along with one part of his most prized catch. The other part, a mystical electric fish, has eluded him his entire life. An opportune discovery of this rare creature by a human inhabitant instigates an unusual mating ceremony, spawning a surge of life that traverses the gap between this life and the next.

Now for yeh.

A floating sculpture made from 12,000 foam kick boards by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman at an old amphitheatre in Wuzhen near Shanghai.

When the artist visited the site last year, he described it as a ‘ kind of sea-world with a dolphin or a killer whale missing that could emerge from the water at any minute’

The giant fish (a nod to local folklore) was created for the town’s annual art festival.

This afternoon.

I was driving to the Fishman, local fish shop in Wicklow Town and happened upon a seal who had made his way to the shop. He swam up the Vartry River, jumped up onto the foot path and made his way across to the Fish Shop. Apparently this has become part of his daily routine at high tide.

Update:

Kevin adds:

To clarify, the lads at the fish shop were worried the seal would be hit by a car. Some days he apparently makes it into the shop.

The lads usher him back across the road. Each time they  get a bucket of fish guts and throw it into the river.  The seal then jumps back in, has his feed, and back up onto the path a cross the road and the cycle continues...only rolling to an end when the seal has had its feed.

The lads also informed me it has become worse as of late, as the seal now has a girlfriend so he is also feeding her and showing off.…well worth a visit at high tide.
