Flourescent coral makes for really cool living scientific art

If I were ever to have a video as a desktop background, one of these would probably be it! (But I probably never would because it would use up too much electricity to keep it going.) Take a look:

‘Preener’ from MORPHOLOGIC on Vimeo.

‘Corynactis viridis’ from MORPHOLOGIC on Vimeo.

These videos are from Morphologic, a science/art initiative based in Miami and led by a marine biologist, Colin Foord. and a designer, Jared McKay.

Thanks to Deep Sea News (who found it on Boing Boing)!

    Cool! I hope your friend likes it! They update their blog every once in a while with a video and explanation of what’s in the video.

    Thanks for the link — very cool stuff. Know a graphic designer who might find this stuff interesting/inspiring, will pass on the link …

    And was then savagely devoured by a camouflaged predator! Amazing.
