Birch Aquarium presents Infinity Cube
Posted on Apr 19th, 2017

Now through December 2017, step into an immersive installation that explores bioluminescence -light produced by living organisms.
 
For three months, artist Iyvone Khoo worked alongside Scripps Institution of Oceanography marine biologist Michael Latz in an effort to better understand the role of bioluminescence in the marine environment. They filmed more than six hours of footage of single-celled marine organisms called dinoflagellates reacting to various stimulants, such as the human heartbeat, music, water flow, and air pressure.
 
Through Infinity Cube -an 8 foot cube- guests will be surrounded by the projected and reflected larger-than-life images Iyvone and Michael captured, accompanied by a soundscape. Guests at the Aquarium will be able to learn more about the phenomenon of bioluminescence through activities accompanying the installation. Discover for yourself how many marine species use light for camouflage, protection, and communication.
