Jenny Holzer for the kiddles

At the Monterey Bay Aquarium

At the Monterey Bay Aquarium: a room in which a school of fish (do I remember what kind? er, no) perpetually swim in a circle. Like the Jenny Holzer truisms that play in an endless L.E.D. stripe around the room in some of her installations. Only, well, they’re fish.

Is it sadistic, the whole aquatic hamster wheel thing? A reasonable question. But meanwhile, it was totally fascinating. That and the jellyfish (below) coulda kept us occupied for– for minutes on end. If it weren’t for my incipient enochiophobia. Go on a weekday and you’ll be entranced.
