"Cold Light: Bioluminescent Evolution"

Other Exhibit
Please note: This event has already occurred.
One of the world's greatest light displays takes place not in the sky, but some 3,000 feet below the surface of the ocean, where no sunlight reaches. It's called bio-luminescence, a trait possessed by 90 percent of aquatic organisms when they're at depths that allow them to produce light through chemical reactions. Artists Beth Hansen, Katie Schuler and Jeremy Tidd use ultraviolet light, fluorescent paints and fiber optics to mimic bio-luminescence, testing the limits of the human eye's perception in an alternatively lit exhibition.
