Alveolata Noctiluca Neonlight
Created by Macoto Yanagisawa of Japan, this Shockwave work of art is a nice diversion from the usual fare.
Although it's not Electroplankton, the title of this interactive musical animation toy shares similar meaning: bioluminescent dinoflagellates that live in marine and aquatic environments, and when grouped in large numbers make the sea phosphorescent. And while playing with its amazing and hypnotic displays, I was constantly reminded of Nintendo's latest musical wonder-toy for its dual-screen handheld.
There is much to see and hear in this electro-luminescent piece. Just click the mouse to cycle through the displays, move the mouse to interact with each.
Mesmerizing and beautiful, just what I needed to start my day.
