L'Oceanogràfic, "The Oceanographic") is an oceanarium situated in the east of the city of Valencia, Spain, where different marine habitats are represented. It was designed by the architect Félix Candela and the structural engineers Alberto Domingo and Carlos Lázaro. It is integrated inside the cultural complex known as the Ciutat de les Arts i de les Ciències (City of Arts and Sciences). It was opened on 14 February 2003.
The Oceanographic is the largest complex of its type in Europe with a surface of 110,000 square metres and a water capacity of 42,000,000 litres . This includes a 26,000,000-litre (6,900,000 US gal) dolphinarium and a 7,000,000-litre ocean tank with sharks, rays and other fish. There are 45,000 animals of 500 different species including fish, mammals, birds, reptiles and invertebrates — amongst these are sharks, penguins, dolphins, sea lions, walruses, beluga whales, and more — all inhabiting nine underwater towers. Each tower is structured in two levels and represent the major ecosystems of the planet.
The park is divided into ten areas. The marine areas reflect the Mediterranean habitats, the polar oceans — the Arctic, the islands, the tropical seas, the temperate seas and the Red Sea. The park also includes a dolphinarium, an auditorium with a Red Sea aquarium, an area of mangrove swamps and marshland, and a garden with more than 80 different species of plant. The sea water is pumped from the beach of La Malva-Rosa having passed all of the necessary requirements for quality.
Hahnemühle Fine Art Baryta 325gsm is a brilliant white high gloss paper that sets the bench mark for high colour depth, large colour gamut and image definition. This paper gives the 'wow' factor particularly to black and white prints with an extremely high d-max and the finest grey tones. It is a unique experience to touch and feel this genuine art paper. Using barium sulphate in the premium inkjet coating ensures the typical gloss that makes this paper a genuine digital replacement for traditional baryta papers.
This fine art print will meet museum longevity requirements and has a unique extra contrasty surface with a sensual feel. The print has a total of twelve different inks, ensuring that even the minutest details are visible, and the colours appear freshly printed even after 100 years. This art paper base offers a unique "touch and feel" experience - the Hahnemuhle typical 4th dimension.
It is the artist's preference to use traditional negative film and mechanical cameras. The film is hand developed and scanned by the artist, prior to creating the art work.
Photographic based artist Jonathan Talks produces original artwork from his Nottingham studio.
