Venue Arts’s latest project is the “Water-Sky Aquarium” in the Grande Praça of the MGM MACAU. The 8-meter tall cylindrical aquarium is regarded as the soul of Water Aurora, and is equipped with LED lights designed to change colors, simulating the water aurora. Filled with aquatic life, the circular design of the aquarium provides a 360-degree view of its inhabitants including the Blacktip Reef Shark from Australia, the Emperor Red Snapper, the Golden Trevally, and the Roundface Batfish from the Hainan province of China.
