Geometry and poetry: sponges and corals.

Nature has its own geometry
and capture it in pictures is poetry.
 Enjoy these sponges and corals.

Slow Life from Daniel Stoupin on Vimeo.

 "SLOW marine animals show their secret life
under high magnification.
Corals and sponges are very mobile creatures,
 but their motion is only detectable
 at different time scales compared to ours
 and requires time lapses to be seen.
 These animals build coral reefs
 and play crucial roles in the biosphere,
 yet we know almost nothing about their daily lives."
