A print in collaboration with Coral Morphologic, featuring zoanthid soft corals
Zoanthids are a type of colonial soft coral that form honeycomb-like mats of polyp clones that grow over rocks on the reef. Like little flower animals, zoanthids naturally follow the sun in style. They get most of their energy from the sun by hosting symbiotic algae in their tissues that feed them through photosynthesis.

During the last interglacial period, long before South Beach was teeming with flashing lights and nightclubs, Miami was an underwater city.
In place of sky scrapers and busy roads, there were fluorescing corals laying down calcium carbonate skeletons that formed ancient underwater cities that we call reefs. Today you can still see remnants of our past: brain and star coral keystone used as facades in our architecture. They depict a once vibrant underwater world. As our climate changes and sea levels rise, these lost reefs, and the city of Miami as we know it, could be reclaimed and recolonized by marine creatures once more, like a poetic ouroboros. Born of the sea, returned to the sea.
Coral Morphologic is a Miami-based hybrid art/science endeavor. Their art and research aim to celebrate and visualize this connection between Miami and its origins, and in doing so, better understand the future of corals in their ever-changing habitat. Coral reefs contain the most diverse ecosystems on our planet. They provide vital shelter for marine organisms and help protect our coastlines from damaging effects of coastal storms and waves. Through photography and film, Coral Morphologic captures the beauty of Earth’s most fluorescent forms of life in hopes of inspiring future generations to study, preserve, and restore our world’s underwater cities.
10% of profits from your purchase will go to Coral Morphologic, to continue their research into these vibrant lifeforms and further inspire others through their unique marriage of art and science.
