A Visual Rendition of Walt Whitman's 'Song of Myself'

Jan 05, 2016 | 465 videos
Video by Nadja Oertelt

The Fundamentals of Neuroscience, a MOOC from Harvard University, presents artistic ruminations on the nature of sensation. The eight-part series of animations is called Poetry of Perception—we’ve previously featured work from this project on The Atlantic Video. In this episode, the animator and illustrator Daniela Sherer brings to life an excerpt from Walt Whitman’s “Song of Myself.”

The series was conceived of and produced by Nadja Oertelt, and the full set of videos can be found on Vimeo.
