Sketch Aquarium: Connected World

The fish drawn by everyone swim around in this aquarium.


Color in a fish on the paper provided. See the picture you have drawn come to life in the massive aquarium in front of you, swimming together with the fish drawn by other people.

If you touch the swimming fish, they will swim away. If you touch the food bags, you can also feed the fish.


The tuna you draw will transcend the boundaries of the artwork and swim out into the Sketch Aquariums and Sketch Oceans of exhibitions around the world. And the tuna drawn in other parts of the world may appear and swim in the Sketch Aquarium right in front of you.
