Waste of a Whale

Whale Fall (after life of a whale) from Sharon Shattuck on Vimeo.

As we’ve been talking about waste in our biomimetics class, and looking at ways that nature amazingly recycles itself over and over again.. this particular video is a beautifully made explanation of what happens to a whale’s body after it dies.

It’s amazing what can be done when the artist and the scientist work together.

    Pretty awesome art in itself.
    But come to think of it, a lot of great art, regardless of format, was begotten from nature.

    also… on a more directly applicable level, how does one find stuff like this a mere 2 weeks after it was posted?
