The artist collective Quiet Ensemble are skilled at making the mundane feel monumental, or at least worth noting. Their installation/ performance art Quintetto is naturally composed of a quintet of goldfish.  The little fish may not realize it, but their movements are of consequence.  Placed in tall tanks, the vertical movements of the fish are monitored and converted into sound.  Each fish is assigned a separate tank.  The installation seems to give some sort of order to the random, and in a strange way lend gravity to something that is trivial.  Check out the video to see the fish in action in full performance art glory!
