“Vortex Water Feature”   Day 107 of 366 Day Project “Magic is everywhere, explore & be amazed everyday!”   At the Canberra Airport terminal heading home from my family trip, I noticed these amazing water features outside the main entry of the terminal. After I checked my luggage in I detoured back to take some photos. The need to provide physical protection to the front of the terminal building, the team at Canberra airport decided to design a more aesthetic alternative to traditional bollards. “Just as heart is a fountain of unspoken words, the universe is a womb of wonder weird worlds.” ― Toba Beta Waterforms International and GMB Architects worked together to find a solution that combined both clever landscaping and unique water features. Richard Phillips, Manager aviation Projects, Canberra airport explained, ‘the water wall along the road edge had always been part of the solution, but we wanted two signature pieces to mark the terminal entries and to finish the stone ‘triangle’. So the ‘vortexes’ were created. They are the work of Dirk Slotboom, Chris Carter and Mark Salis from Waterforms International. They are the only Vortexes of this size in Australia and feature coloured LeD lighting, which are controlled by a central computer and can, rotate through eight colours or stay as one. The vortex can grow and disappear altogether, and even change shape and give the effect of plaiting hair. On a more practical note, the water is re-circulated, filtered and treated to 1.5 microns to prevent any sort of bacteria and if anything falls into the vortex it can be retrieved from a collection...

“Bluebottle Jellyfish”   Day 71 of 366 Day Project “Magic is everywhere, explore & be amazed everyday!” Bluebottles are one of nature’s many fine creatures with their beautiful Purple-Blue-Turquoise colour they can seem quite mesmerising and beautiful to many, but don’t be fooled by these wonderful creature’s colouring and shape! Bluebottles sting thousands of Australian swimmers every year – from ocean swimmers, children frolicking in the shallows to walkers walking along the beach. A bluebottle can sting you at any time of day! With tentacles that can reach up to three meters long and brought in by strong winds and forceful currents, a Bluebottle’s sting can be both irritating and extremely painful, lasting up to 5 or more hours of constant pain. But let’s look further into the blue bottle jellyfish—which isn’t a jellyfish. And it’s not one animal. A blue bottle is four different kinds of creatures, known as zooids, living together to form what seems to be one creature. It’s fascinating as one part makes up the flotation bladder, another does the hunting, another the eating and digesting, and yet another takes care of reproduction. The Bluebottle, also known as the ‘Portuguese Man-of-War’ is not a single animal but a colony of four kinds of highly modified individuals (polyps). The polyps are dependent on one another for survival....
