The concept underlines the need for a new type of light experience. Bioluminescence is a natural emission of light by living organisms, produced only in the darkness. Poetically, it’s a source of light that accepts the darkness in order to survive, beholding a mystification of beauty, living and mainly happening at the bottom of the ocean. Having said that this project is a smart habitat for the living single-cell bioluminescent micro-organisms called dinoflagellate, as an example of how light can reintroduce habits of darkness into a daily routine by establishing an experience through emancipation of empathic contact with nature. The concept is motivated by the belief that biology is strongly becoming a key component for everyday products, and vice-versa because there is no technology that overpass the complex simplicity of biology.
