Seapunk: Powered by Imagination is the theme of the Aquarium’s newest exhibit that boosts interest in science, technology, exploration and invention. The exhibit is modeled after a subgenre of science fiction, art, technology, and fashion inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery. Visitors will be introduced to an underwater fantasy live-animal exhibition that transforms the spectacle of the average aquarium gallery using interactives that push, pump, blow, navigate, and twist the imagination. Victorian-era and futuristic technologies will merge with marine exploration. Unique marine species on display were selected for their unusual, over-engineered appearance, as well as their presence in the Pacific Ocean.
