Social Escape - Stap voor stap ontstaat een aquarium ter ontspanning (anti burn-out)

Social Escape is een aquascaping project van JBL online marketing manager Matthias Wiesensee en zijn vrienden, Adrie Baumann (Aquascaping Symphony) en Lucas Müller (GarnelenTV). Social = Online marketing en social media; Escape = Het ontsnappen uit het snelle en gestreste, dagelijkse, werkende bestaan naar een andere wereld. Een rustoord dat voor de nodige balans zorgt. De titel komt van mij - Social Escape - De vlucht uit de digitale werkstress - mijn toevluchtsoord ;-). Mijn gedachte is dat de titel niet specifiek moet beschrijven wat je ziet meer eerder welke waarde de bezitter eraan geeft. Wereldkampioen aquascaping, Adrie Baumann, heeft dit aquarium, na een uitgebreid voorafgaande planning, met liefde ingericht. De samenwerking tussen Anne Braun en Ralf Gerlach van Tropica (InVitro planten), Stefan Kosuck (StreamBiz) en JBL maakte de realisatie mogelijk. Aquascaping Symphony ) and Lucas Müller ( GarnelenTV ).

What does the name mean? It reflects a part of my life. Social stands for online marketing and social media. Escape means a way out of our fast moving digital lives and a way into another world. A balancing haven of peace and relaxation. The oasis for recuperation and gathering new ideas for the creation of a great hobby – our hobby. What better to help us than a wonderful aquarium? The project needed a name and I decided that the title doesn’t need to describe what you see, but what it means for the owner (and that’s me here).

Do your aquariums also have a name?

The world aquascaping champion Adrie Baumann and I set up this aquarium with loving care at my home in a weekend, once we had conducted detailed preliminary planning as to what and how to put my ideas into action. My flat became a film set, with covered up doors and windows, several large studio lamps and a film crew issuing instructions. Of course we could have done it all in private, but then you wouldn’t have been able to enjoy these step-by-step videos. You would have had to make do with a couple of snapshots.

The whole project was also supported by Tropica Aquarium Plants , Denmark, who contributed the magnificent in vitro plants and by StreamBiz who contributed the LED lights Zetlight QMaven Q6500.
