A giant digital whale will swim over the city’s neon-lit skyline on Saturday.

"Ocean by Naked," specially designed for Shanghai by Japanese visual artist Ryotaro Muramatsu, creates a fantasy world in the Shanghai World Financial Center, where ocean creatures swim above the city. 

The exhibition covers nearly 2,000 square meters of the 4th and 94th floors of the center. 

Visitors can explore the deep sea. They can wake up luminescent jellyfish, swim in a sardine run and dive to 6,500 meters to stroll among mysterious creatures.

“I hope visitors can feel the mystery of sea and the beauty of life,” said Muramatsu. 

The exhibition will run from Saturday to February 16, 2020.

Admission is 160 yuan (US$23) for adults. Children and students aged below 23 and elders aged over 60 pay half price.
