Dolphins face many dangers

Meet Kevin Carrol and Dan Strzermpka, the designers of Winter's prosthetic tail

Meet Harbor Branch's Dolphin Doctor, Juli Goldsten. Learn how dolphins are teaching her a thing or two. She has been instrumental in Winters care and rehabilitation and dedicates her life to caring for sick and injured dolphins in the wild.

After a vet check, the animal is released to be wild again.

    Our vision for the app was to have more than just a list of one-minute films that you could see on You Tube or Vimeo. We wanted the world to learn more about the artists and their visions for their art. We wanted to give greater context and meaning to the content in the app that the users could connect to.

    Obviously, any good Crankamacallit would need to use pretty advanced technology. Where do you suppose some of the Crankamacallit pieces and parts came from?

    A serious plan? Let’s “roll it out”!

    Speaking of Blueprints: How would you like to create your own drawings of a “Crankamacallit”? (Psst, a hint: could it be the special red pen?)
