A bit of inspiraiton on hanging jellyfish light forms…. not sure on the artist as it popped up on a random design post.
Here’s a couple of links to some great projects at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, that allow visitors to interact with digital jellyfish, through a foot pump interface: http://www.lindsaydigital.com/2012/03/31/mbaq_jellies/ And another amazing touch screen interface for exploring the world of Phytoplankton:
It’s pretty amazing to have this incredible research institute right here in our back yard in Moss Landing. It’s even more amazing to get to collaborate with Steve Haddock as an advisor on the project. Here are some links to some great resources on their website: http://www.mbari.org/ http://www.mbari.org/news/homepage/2013/ecohab/ecohab.html http://www.mbari.org/expeditions/Bioluminescence2012/index.htm http://www.mbari.org/news/homepage/2013/gene-synchrony/gene-synchrony.html http://www.mbari.org/phyto-genome/research.htm http://www.mbari.org/news/homepage/2013/gene-synchrony/gene-synchrony.html
The Jaffe labratory for underwater imaging at UCSD is an amazing source of innovation and education in the realms of Phytoplankton imaging and marine biology. Their new plankton camera that can be taken out into the open sea’s is incredible. Check out the video below or their website for more info. http://jaffeweb.ucsd.edu/
Jellywatch.org is a page for recording sightings of jellyfish and other marine organisms: http://www.jellywatch.org/

Oceanic Scales is a place to learn and to be inspired. It is a lens focused on phytoplankton, the first link in the oceanic food chain. This project explores biomimicry as a tool. It breathes and glows with a pulse. It is a barometer of local ocean health. It explores the tipping point between humanities[…]
We had the first class of our Spring quarter Mechatronics / Oceanic Scales project group this week and everyone got to introduce themselves and share their thoughts. Jennifer put together an amazing array of land & ecology based artists, widening perspectives and planting seeds of creativity. With over a dozen graduate and undergraduate students involved,[…]
