The Bloomfield Science Museum in Jerusalem hosts the exciting nature exhibition that allows a glimpse into the magical worlds in the depths of the sea
Total darkness, bone-chilling cold, crushing pressure and strange creatures out of this world, all this at a depth of thousands of meters below the sea level. The Bloomfield Science Museum in Jerusalem invites you to an underwater journey to the bottom of the ocean, to a place where fewer people have visited than the moon, to a variety of unknown ecosystems, into the infinite mystery of the inner space of our world, to a vast three-dimensional realm beyond imagination. To "depths".
"Deeps" (DEEP) is a new exhibition coming to the Bloomfield Science Museum in Jerusalem at the same time as its presentation at the Natural History Museum in London and immediately after it was presented at the Natural History Museum in Paris and Hong Kong. At the exhibition, which will take place in a darkened space, visitors could meet luminous, alien-like creatures that live at a depth of thousands of meters below the surface of the sea, accompanied by a soundtrack written especially for the exhibition and films shot in the depths, so that the visitor feels himself deep in the depths of the great sea.
The exhibition, which draws inspiration from the "Year of Species Diversity" announced by the United Nations, opens a door to the deceptive kingdom of the middle waters, which remained mysterious for many years and was even considered a lifeless desert; The "open sea" dives in the 80s of the last century, revealed the existence of an amazing variety of living creatures, and in particular gelatinous creatures, sometimes enormous in size, which constitute the most abundant accumulation of creatures on the planet, which may exceed that of a forest The Amazonian rain and the Great Barrier Reef together.
The deep-dwelling shark, the ball lure, the bright cattipni shark, the pale crabdog, the pink osprey and more - all of them face a difficult problem of food supply - the temperature at the bottom of the sea does not exceed 4oC, and the only sources of food available are the crumbs that fall from the shallow water, the vast majority of which have already been eaten by The creatures living down the first nautical mile. In addition, there is also the need to find a spouse - not an easy task in the absolute darkness of the deep ocean. The "aliens of the deep" have to meet all these challenges, while avoiding the attention of the countless lurking predators.
Although we will never be able to visit the natural habitat of those creatures, the visit to the exhibition will allow a glimpse into their lives in an environment that will make the visitor imagine, if only for a moment, that he is diving thousands of meters under the sea.
The exhibition will be shown between 1.6.10 and 31.8.10 at the Bloomfield Science Museum, Givat Ram, Jerusalem Tel: 02-6544888. The launch evening will be held on 31.5
