This video is a screen capture of a sound sensitive, real-time animation made in threejs. The piece is about the Turritopsis nutricula, or the immortal jellyfish. According to wikipedia: " It is the only known case of an animal capable of reverting completely to a sexually immature, colonial stage after having reached sexual maturity as a solitary stage... this process can go on indefinitely, effectively rendering the jellyfish biologically immortal". The piece is about the human desire for immortality and the possibility that we may turn ourselves into human/jellyfish chimera to achieve these ends. The jellyfish in the video is made of human bones and when the viewer destroys it by being too loud it will regenerate itself.

The track is by György Ligeti
