Coral Morphologic is a scientific art endeavor led by marine biologist Colin Foord and musician
Jared McKay. With the aquarium as our primary medium, we explore the artistic possibilities of living coral reef organisms via HD videography and site-specific artworks.
Our laboratory/ studio is a state-certified aquaculture facility perpetuating marine life in Overtown-Miami, Florida. In partnership with the University of Miami, we mentor a team of marine science undergraduates in coral aquaculture practices, and are currently working with biologists
from the Université de Provence in Marseille, France, to develop a living genetic database, aquaculture techniques, and biological assays of coral species.
