What is the ocean like from the perspective of a plankter?
Plankterception explores oceanic processes from the perspective of a plankter, with a focus on turbulence. The creative work is based on research on physical biological interactions with plankton on a micro-scale.
The Turbulence Touch Tank is interactive, aside from looking straight into the laser or touching or eating the dry ice, you are free to play!
The projected video features plankton collected offshore of the Scripps Pier in April of 2023.
Through delving into the scientific research and the creative design process several new themes emerged that will continue to be explored through writing and further iterations of the installation.
