Movement

 

Everything that lives, moves, be it in water, on land, or in the air. Visitors can experience the power and elegance of animals in motion — whether swimming, running or flying — by closely approaching the freestanding displays. A group of hammerhead sharks swims through the room on patrol. Springboks flee from a hungry cheetah at high speed and seven swans fly right above visitors’ heads. These and a plethora of other specimens demonstrate the biological requirements of motion and the many variations of swimming, running and flying that have developed in the course of evolution. A selection of films offers visitors insight into the human appreciation for the aesthetics of motion and their recent use of film to document and artistically represent movement.
