"I find the concept of being present in each of the photographs yet remaining invisible quite incredible. I have an undeniable presence in each photograph yet there is no evidence that I was there other than the light sculptures that have been left behind."

Animations by Andy Thomas visualize birdsong samples into abstract sculptural forms - video embedded below:
Australian artist Andy Thomas specializes in creating ‘audio life forms’: beautiful abstract shapes that react to sounds. In this animated short, he visualizes two recorded bird sounds from the archives of the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision [beeldengeluid.nl] in Hilversum.
"Glow worms build ‘snares’ made of silk fibers coated with mucous. The snares consists of tubes in which the glow worms are suspended, as well as long, hanging filaments coated in sticky beads of mucous. The glow worms emit a pale light which attracts insects toward the sticky threads of their snare. The blue/green light is a product of a chemical reaction between luciferin (a waste product), the enzyme luciferase, adenosine triphosphate (ATP - the energy molecule) and oxygen. The snare usually catches small bugs such as midges, but insects as big as cockroaches can be entrapped.”
These are perhaps the loveliest boogers I’ve ever seen.
