A celebration of artificial light.

Truly an amazing exhibition. I feel my ability to verbally describe it would never be sufficient; here are some images of the highlights.

Final Post

Alas all good things must come to an end , I’ve thoroughly enjoyed myself during this module, explored new sides and strength other elements  of myself whilst getting to know some wonderful people. This project is a subject i’ve always been interested but not had the chance.I’d like to thank all the staff who’ve helped us along the way, Arebtye Gallery for hosting a memorable weekend and to all the rest of the group for being so wonderful and welcoming to a shy scientist.

Some examples of bio-luminescent bacteria. The glow they emit is so wonderful, and delicate. The fact that these are living organisms amazes me. This particular light source is similar to the blue/green glow that was present in several of the installations at the Light Show exhibition. I will have to speak to the microbiologists at Cavendish Campus to see whether this bacteria is available and safe to use

Hunter Cole

Artist and geneticist who uses bi-luminescent bacteria as a medium for her work.

“Hunter Cole creates controlled line drawings using bioluminescent bacteria. The bacteria then grow in the host environment. Bacteria become collaborators in the art as it grows and dies.”


In terms of ideas, her desire to create a drawing with bacteria that lives and dies is similar to our objective to create some form of natural light installation. It’s encouraging to see the results of her work because we can get an idea of scale required to produce a substantial glow.

Watch on rcadoescience.tumblr.com

Amazing TED talk regarding bioluminescence in nature.

(Apologies for the poor quality)

Anya Tish Gallery is excited to announceBioluminescence, the first solo exhibit of works by Romanian-born, Texas-based artist, Adela Andea, whose uniquely illuminated and kinetic sculptures create futuristic eco-systems using consumer electronics and mass produced objects that ebb and flow between organic biological forms and glowing technological systems.  Andea lives and works in Denton, TX and is currently teaching at the University of North Texas while completing an MFA in New Media.

Andea’s light sculptures re-define the term “bioluminescence”, which refers to the naturally occurring production of light by a living organism, into a new mechanized biosphere that is powered exclusively by manmade electronics. The gallery is submerged into an ambiguous and mystifying landscape that is both a testament to the natural sciences as well as a prediction of technology in the future. The exhibit features two large installations and several wall dependent sculptures that contain intricately weaved circuits of LED and CFL lights, computer hardware and manufactured building materials, which surge and flow across the gallery walls. Andea’s work embodies both a physical presence as well as ethereal sensibility that blurs the boundaries between organic and manufactured experiences and ultimately creates a fascinating visual hybrid between biological and industrial science.
