They may look like scenes from an animated kids’ film based underwater, but these stills are in fact all taken from PhD student Daniel Stoupin’s mind-blowing time-lapse film, Slow Life. The film combines over 150,000 photographs taken of some of the world’s most stunning coral reefs over excruciatingly long periods of time, allowing us land-based viewers to watch the otherwise imperceptible changes on the the ocean beds, which actually happen incredibly slowly.
There’s nothing we love more than creatures that look like aliens, especially when they serve as such excellent screensaver and desktop wallpaper fodder; reminding us how small and normal and inconsequential we are every time we turn our computers on. Even better, you can read an incredibly detailed account of what the film contains over here, in Daniel’s own, far better informed words. Best watched on a giant screen, with the sound turned up LOUD.
