Great Barrier Reef recreated in a gas tank

The Great Barrier Reef has been recreated in an old gas storage tank in Germany.

Artist Yadegar Asisi projects the famous coral reef onto the tank’s cloth-covered walls, letting visitors experience the incredible diversity of the habitat on a life-size scale, revealing coral, fish, and more in a sea of magical greens and blues.

The 360⁰ panorama is 100 feet high – visitors can get closer to the art by climbing a tower of stairs in the centre of the installation.

Asisi is known for his similar projects, including his recreations of Ancient Rome and the Berlin Wall.

The work will be on show at the Asisi Panometer in Leipzig until next September.

Take a closer look at the panorama here and tell us if you’ll be visiting.
