That environment of the unknown — and protecting it — was the inspiration behind the band Animal Collective’s latest album and video, Tangerine Reef. Created to coincide with the International Year of the Reef, the musicians tell how art can help inspire us to reckon with climate change before its too late.
A must see video, ck. it out.
The video for Tangerine Reef shows corals moving 10 times their natural speed, making them seem otherworldly but humanlike. Slimy appendages wriggle and feed neon, tessellating mouths. At times, they seem to smile. At other times, the images drift into patterns and abstraction.
There is still a lot we don’t know about corals: Scientists weren’t sure how they reproduced until 1981 and researchers are still learning the details about how they live, grow and respond to environmental stresses.
PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD group has over 1,500 members and over 101,000 photos and videos.
BIRD OF THE WEEK
SCIENTIFIC NAME: Agelaius phoeniceus
POPULATION: 150 million
HABITAT: Breeds and winters in fresh and saltwater marshes; also meadows, prairies, and fields, especially near ditches or ponds.
The liquid, burbling “conk-a-ree!” of a male Red-winged Blackbird on territory is a sure sign of spring, or at least its pending arrival. This bird’s common name derives from the sleek black males’ distinctive shoulder patches, or epaulets, which flash red in flight and while the bird is singing on territory.
The Red-winged Blackbird belongs to the family Icteridae, which includes the Eastern Meadowlark, Tricolored Blackbird, Rusty Blackbird, and Baltimore Oriole.
