Duck!
July/August 2002 (vol. 22 no. 4)
pp. 88-97
When ducks swim on a smooth deep lake, they create a V-shaped ripple of waves behind them. Boats and ships do the same thing, as do human swimmers. I saw a duck swimming across a glass-smooth pond a few weeks ago, and I wondered what it might be like if I could choreograph a flock of trained ducks to swim as I wanted. Could the ducks be induced to make interesting patterns out of their overlapping wakes?
