Pearls of the Planet
A Live Cam Experience by explore.org
Nov 07, 2015 - Mar 18, 2016
The Annenberg Space for Photography and explore.org invite everyone to a LIVE experience of the beautiful Pacific Ocean. Pearls of the Planet, a new live cam installation, brings visitors deep into the colorful kelp beds of the Channel Island of Anacapa, along the break of Hawaii’s most celebrated waves, and across the coastline as far as Alaska. Visitors can step into immersive booths to make eye contact with orcas, join massive gatherings of walrus, get hypnotized by jellyfish, and experience the color palette of exotic fish species that paint the coral beds of the world’s largest ocean.
Visitors can pose in an ocean-inspired photo booth featuring a surfboard set amongst Hawaii’s big waves and can share their photographs through social media by tagging #explorepearls on Instagram and Twitter.
The exhibit will honor the heroic work of Mike Prickett, a Pearls of the Planet creative fellow. An innovator in surf cinematography and ocean conservation, Prickett sacrificed his health to save the life of a deep water diver and has documented his road to recovery in a series entitled Reel Life.
explore.org is a philanthropic community created by Charles Annenberg Weingarten to champion the selfless acts of others and to provide a window on the world. The website is the largest collection of nature live cams in the world.
