Reefs In Art: Plankton Edition Part Two

By Caitlin Nichole 7 years agoNo Comments

Ocean Drifters

“Ocean Drifters, a secret world beneath the waves” is a short film about plankton written, produced and directed by Dr Richard Kirby (Marine Institute Research Fellow, Plymouth University) with a narration by Sir David Attenborough and music by Richard Grassby-Lewis.

Since posting one “Reefs In Art” post earlier wasn’t satisfying enough, I ventured out in search of more Plankton Art, because let’s be honest, diatoms can be pretty adorable! Seriously, have you ever seen a cuter Christmas Card? Cleverly placed “sea angel” pteropods float amongst the stars over a glittery Christmas Tree as bells ring away. Punny, I like it. The whimsical card is the creation of Plankton scientist Dr. Richard Kirby. Be sure to check out his website, he has tons of really cool, beautiful things all over the place. This is an ongoing art project I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on, and I promise to share anything really cool I happen upon!

I'm a New York Reef Enthusiast and Fish Nerd, amateur photographer, dog lover, beer brewer/drinker, cocktail mixer, semi-seasoned chef, Prosecco Indulging, lightly foul-mouthed, slightly antagonistic, sorta-artistic, wordy bookworm of a girl. Dog mommy of three, an Abyssinian dubbed "Mau", plus one Dwarf Cuttlefish and a few Clarions. I have a tattoo of an Octopus with flowers on my rear. I ride my bike to the beach and sip bourbon with a good (reef) book while watching the waves. I like to think I'm witty and charming - but I'll let you decide.
