'Man O War'
(Natural History Episode 24)

In this special installment of our Natural History film series, Geologist (of Animal Collective) soundtracks a macroscopic view of a Portuguese man-o-war’s beautiful, yet highly venomous tentacles.

The man-o-war is often mistaken as a jellyfish, but this is not the case. It does not swim, but is instead propelled by the winds, tides and currents across the ocean’s surface. In fact, a man-o-war is not even a single organism, but an entire colony of organisms called siphonophores, that live together as a singular unit. They are found floating across all of the world’s tropical and subtropical oceans. Even more impressive is that the man-o-war colony is comprised of four different types of polyps, called zooids, that each serve a different purpose to the overall functioning of the colony.

a collection of videos that inspire us. we are colectivo futuro a dedicated cultural node where artforms and people converge. this space is not, however, a place that peddles hype, although we do like to showcase works that we feel carry a common aesthetic. nor is this a community exclusively for artists or elitists, as we ourselves are the first to admit that we do not have the final word on the subject. regardless, one does not have to be an architect to love architecture, or a musician to recognize good music. our aim is only to bring exposure to various individuals from all parts that work in different forms of art, whether visual or audible, who are committed to innovating their medium, or bringing a new light on the traditional. colectivo futuro = for a collective future!
