Aqua custodia

914 Favourites
A rather strange idea I must say. So the thing is that the area where the water is open, so it's the same water outside as inside. I would be happy to hear your thoughts about it!

If this structure would be lowered into water with normal air pressure inside the box the water would compress the air a lot and water would fill most of the space inside. To keep the level of water at a level of 10-15 % of the height of the box it wouldn't be possible to lower it more than about 1.8 meters with normal air pressure in the box. Therefore, there is a over pressure inside the box and more air had to be filled into the box as it was lowered down to the bottom. By increasing the pressure of air inside the box it would also keep the box from imploding because of the surrounding water. A human can survive at a higher pressure, at least for a while: "Depending on how you go about going that far below water and the specific tolerances of your body a deadly depth can be from 500 to 1200 feet." ([link]) Imagine that it's not as deep as 500 feet. Rather a few hundred feet's or maybe less, but that is not really important.

To get food he has to fish, which you notice if you look closely. The small propellers provides the lamps with energy. The water is moving and makes the propellers spin.

The big failure will probably be that the air runs out as it would require a lot more trees to keep producing enough oxygen to keep him alive. Slow death in the aqua custodia.

I love the concept for this piece, and also your detailed description :heart:

The only fault I would find is that you can't zoom in to see the smaller details - otherwise a beautiful image :clap:

I love how specific you are in the description. The concept and output are very well done.

I actually did this once though. It was in Minecraft..... :) lol

I really like the idea, and the way the light trickles down is very realistic. My curiosity caused me to look this up [link] Just an FYI. :d

Excellent idea and picture.

Did you you know It is estimated that marine plants produce between 70 and 80 percent of the oxygen in the atmosphere, maybe put some sea weed around the house in the water:)

you can also split the water to H and O2 with electricity.

Not sure the exact figures, but I think it's something like 80% of the world's oxygen actually comes from sea plants.

"aqua custodia" is a reference to jacques cousteau?
(hope i spelled his name half way correct)

I would have to say the same, but really is a great idea and you are a very smart artist, that allow you to show very interesting perspective of the daily life in not common situations.
(I don't know If I write this in the correct way).
