  1. This disc includes three shows detailing how the acts of nature are informing modern science. It describes how studying bird flight can help humans build better airplanes. Studying boxfish may lead to ways to make safer but smaller cars. If you like science, then you may get a kick out of this. But it wasn’t exciting the humanities major in me.

    First, humans have always studied animals. The flights of birds helped Polynesians and Vikings to navigate on water, for example. Second, the Jungian in me hated this. This work is full of images of termites, wasps, and cockroaches. I am sure they have impressive designs, but like most humans, I don’t want to be looking at them. Third the series was repetitive. It was okay to see one of the three shows speak of termites, but every episode did. This work was recycling itself in front of the viewers’ eyes.

    In fairness, this could be shown in a high school science class for the students’ benefits. I just wasn’t left applauding on my feet like I did when I saw Selma Hayak’s “Frida” for example.
