Scenes also serve as clips for teaching, documenting and preserving the accuracy of science through film.

They are precisely unedited and raw. There are meant to be recycled and repositioned into a different context in which they can be framed as cinematic experiences.

The first few hours of development of 9 organisms

A movie of 9 organisms’ first day of development. From left to right (top to bottom):

Zebrafish (Danio rerio), a popular model organism for studying development

Sea urchin (Lytechinus variegatus), a spiky marine relative of the starfish

Black widow spider (Latrodectus mactans)

Tardigrade (Hypsibius dujardini), an eight-legged micro-animal that lives in water, mosses, and lichens

Parchment tube worm (Chaetopterus variopedatus), a spiny marine worm

Roundworm (Caenorhabditis elegans), a soil-dwelling worm, the first multicellular organism to have its genome sequenced, and a popular model for studying development

Slipper snail (Crepidula fornicate), a medium-sized sea snail
