Eerie, beautiful, captivating images of sea urchins mating and being born (that little triangle guy is a baby sea urchin).

These are a glimpse of how life begins in the deep ocean — and there’s a lot of life down there. The oceans provide about 190 times as much living space as every other space on Earth — soil, air and fresh water — put together. A vast array of amazing creatures live in the depths of this watery world. Squid, jellyfish, and plankton are just a few of our favorites (all shown as tiny babies in that last gif).

Another great look at the alien world of the ocean. See closeups of coral here.

Spore prints by Morgan Linforth 

Little mushroom supernovas. Spore prints, like fingerprints, are never the same from one to the next. And as with humans, they’re important for identification, be it via shape or spore color. ID’ing a mushroom can be a notoriously difficult process for even erudite fungus experts, though, so it’s only one component of pinning down a species.

Looks rad, too. —MN

Candaş Şişman: I/P/O-cle, 2013

Light Installation 

Lenses, light, mirror, sound, container, fog
1200X240X240 cm

I – Input P – Process 
O – Output
cle – Cycle

IPOcle is an installation simulating the way we perceive the reality that exist in our physical world and the various layers, variables, cycles that are present in this process of perceiving. With the senses that we have, we can perceive only a limited portion of the physical reality that surrounds us. This perceived physicality keeps altering as it goes through many layers and processes (biological and psychological) in our brains. These perceptions draw our perceptual schemas and these schemas in turn shape the reality we perceive. Our perceptions and what we perceive, therefore, constantly reshape call each other into being, as in a vicious cycle. At this point, how can we define what reality really is, what constant can we refer to, and aren’t we supposed to look at this issue in a more holistic and intertwined manner?

The IPOCle is made of a strong light source, lenses, a convex mirror, a fog machine and a sound system; installed inside a dark container. The light source is located so that the goes through the lenses, hung one after another. The refracted light reaches the mirror. The convex mirror transforms the light and reflects it back. The fog machine keeps running to make the dispersed light visible for us; while a base frequency keeps running in the background.

The light and the light source describe physical reality and input / The lenses: The process and various factors of perception / The mirror: What is perceived, the output and the cycle.

The artist has preferred to make use of common grounds that various studies meet; instead of basing all his work on a single research or researcher. Therefore, the I/P/O-cle project also focuses on the relations between various research topics and the patterns that reveal as a result of these relations. Şişman’s choice of research topics are about physics and neuro-sciences. “Perception” is at the intersection of these fields, therefore is the base for the project’s hybrid structure.

Electrons are directed through a fluorescent lightbulb by molecules of mercury and argon in this series of GIFs from “La Magia de la Fluorescencia,” a GE science film from 1946. 

visualization of how fluorescent lights work.. wish I could see the little people atoms doing their thing
