Dancing Blue Jellies

March 28, 2011

I wanted to share this video for two reasons: first, I have been absolutely mesmerized with jellyfish ever since I took a trip to the Monterrey Aquarium about seven years ago. Their shapes and translucent colors are poetry in motion. I do realize that jellyfish can be very dangerous for humans, but seeing these creatures move fills me with a sense of mystery and curiosity.

Second, I’ve been working on a project and studying how different organizations use social media and YouTube to promote themselves. This video from the Shedd Aquarium of Chicago does a great job of promoting an upcoming exhibition. I really love how the accompanying music works alongside the great images. So, if I can be a cultural ambassador for a moment, I invite you to Chicago to see this exhibit. It looks amazing!

How about you…what creatures fill you with a sense of wonder and curiosity?

Thanks Tim, this does look like an awesome exhibit and I’m just starting to see a big, well-deserved media push. Thanks for stopping by and have a good one!
