Think Evolution #1 : Kiku-ishi(Ammonite)
2016-2017 objects video

After prospering for 300 million years ammonite disappeared at the same time when dinosaurs extinct 66 million years ago. From its shell structure and fossils, it is assumed that ammonite is closely related to squid and octopus, The octopus has thrown away its shells in the course of evolution, but it is known to use tools such as coconut shells and bivalves to protect to protect its soft body. I was inspired by the evolutionary story, and began a journey of thought experiments to restore the shape of the excavated ammonite shell and encounter octopus.
