Compared with fully aquatic gobies, these specialised fish present a range of peculiar anatomical and ethological adaptations that allow them to move effectively on land as well as in the water. As their name implies, these fish use their fins to move around in a series of skips. Jumping high above the mud will get them noticed - but they must take care not to dry out in the sun, and keep their skin cool and moist. It reminds one of her own skin care routine and the jumping she does due to, or to impress, others. ’The new garden of eden’ questions the influence of spatial and contextual pressure on a person. What would it be like not to be subject to the places you inhabit, but to be object? To be loose, not attached, not influenced by what surrounds you? The irony lies in imagining an ‘ideal’ space - still a landscape, but no longer one that exerts influence. Is it possible? Is it a biblical paradise? Or is it just my overgrown garden in the city?
