Computational Visualization of the Electromagnetic Sensory World of Sharks – Mike Paulin

06Paulin

One strand of my current research is about how the shark’s electrosensory system evolved, from simple(r) creatures that drifted with the ocean currents, gathering small amounts of information that enabled them to alter the probability of where they ended up, to sophisticated creatures extracting every bit of information from every available channel in the environment and picking a path through it. Seems to me there’s a story there, about art and science and storytelling as ways of seeing and navigating.
