Inspiration/Musings · Summer of Glass


For the past several months I have been collecting imagery for my course at the Pilchuck Glass School.
The instructor, Kari Russell-Pool suggested we start keeping a ‘clip art’ file. Everything that intrigues us creating a record of the way we see the world.
Then I came upon Morphologic.

‘The Lynx Nudibranch’

This short video depicts one example of just how tightly woven the ecosystem of the coral reef really is. Even in just a few square centimeters of space, on the hinged back of an oyster, there exists an entire community of life that is inextricably linked together in a complex (yet practical) balance…

Obviously I love their videos- but I also feel connected to their music which is very reminiscent of Brian Eno‘s ambient land masses, and Andrei Gravelle‘s soundscapes. I’ve been trying to find a collection of Morphologic’s music, I would really like to buy a copy(ies) for my iPod.

Corynactis viridis
I love the colours…
something I’ve recently been researching is the Discosoma sanctithomae.

Here CoralMorphologic has captured a DiscoSoma shown with a ‘lettuce’ nudibranch.

Make sure to check out all of their videos. 🙂
