Redefining Darkness

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.
Carolina Hermenegildo is a young designer, currentely studing at the Royal College of Art in MA Design Products. Fascinated by how design can magnify or reframe our perception of ideals and emancipate engagement and mystify experiences. Regarding this vision, the observation of environmental wonders, as well as, the inspiration from the arts and poetry literature, are strong interests to guide her personality within the discipline of product design.
