The 9th room, “Geisha Goldfish”, was started by the Japanese artist Aki Narita on 30th July 2014, and completed it on 13th February 2015.
Ms. Narita says, "When I looked out of the window, I felt like I was inside an aquarium". In this project, she took up the challenge of painting the wallpaper in oil paints as if a guest room was an aquarium. During 7 months, she painted red goldfish not only on the walls but also on the ceiling. Bewitching goldfish playing in your room like they were floating in an aquarium, dressed like geishas. The goldfish swimming freely here and there give you a strange feeling of floating. She painted this thinking that in ancient times, a dream of being in a room surrounded by famous goldfish like lucky charms would bring good luck to the customers who stayed there.
The dream you will have here is like a suggestion of a parallel world, or a premonition. I hope you dream a beautiful dream of “geisha goldfish” in this Artist room.
Goldfish, Dream Interpretation
◆ If a goldfish appeared in your dreams, it’s a nice premonition that your fortunes will be taking a turn for the better.
◆ If you saw many goldfish swimming, it’s very uplifting both to your mind and body, and it portends that, suddenly, the fog will lift and you can do anything you want.
◆ Also, if you are conscious of the water in which the goldfish are swimming, it will lead you to something important that can’t be seen or touched. If the water’s clear, it’s like you are wandering in the world of the seventh sense (beyond the sixth sense), whereas if it’s cloudy, let's go to the beer hall!
◆If you had a dream that you got a goldfish, caught it, or scooped it up with a net or your hands, it’s a lucky sign of innovative creativity and inspiration, and that you are going to meet somebody wonderful! Let's just start preparing for our departure.
◆ If you had a dream of Ranchu, it’s a sign that it aroused your unconscious emotions to release you, bring you unexpected happiness, and bewitch you helplessly......
