Slow Life: Macro Time-lapse of Corals by Daniel Stoupin

“Slow Life” is a breathtaking time-lapse video revealing the secret life of exotic corals and sponges. The short film was created by Daniel Stoupin, a photographer and PhD student at the University of Queensland in Australia.

“Corals were illuminated with full-spectrum lamp imitating natural ambient light and bringing out fluorescent colors that are not apparent under white light.”

“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.

Artists deserve respect. Even if it bothers you and you don't like their work; refrain from negative opinions, non-constructive remarks. Opt for an objective analysis of the work as well as a good understanding of the author's intentions..Thx
