Science can be an amazing and wondrous thing. It can also be down right gorgeous. Don’t believe me? Just ask artist Rebecca Klee and microbiologist Siouxsie Wiles, the duo that collaborated on a stunning time-lapse called ‘Living Light’.
‘Living Light’ captures bioluminescent bacteria growing in a Petri dish over the course of four days. It was created for the Art in the Dark light festival earlier this month in Auckland, New Zealand. The event challenges artists to “evolve projects that not only fit the specific contours of the great, urban outdoors but that must illuminate the dark, using sustainable materials and energy wherever possible.”

The partners did not stop there. They also displayed a bioluminescent sculpture in the form of a squid alongside their work.
Who though bacteria could be so beautiful?
Until Next Time . . .
