    Living Light: The Art & Science of Bioluminescence

    Science: Prof. J. Woodland Hastings, a pioneer researcher in the world of bioluminescence and circadian biology, looks at how marine organisms like dinoflagellates, jellies, and bacteria produce biological light.
    Art: KMD performs Aqua Borealis, a dance of traveling biolumes, rainbowed sculpture and liquid-light, inspired by deep-sea exploration and marine organisms that use light and movement to communicate in the ocean.
    Passion: Dr. Sylvia Earle has led more than 60 ocean expeditions worldwide culminating in over 7,000 hours underwater. Named by Time Magazine as the first “Hero for the Planet," she received a TED award in 2009 and launched the Mission Blue Foundation, which aims to establish marine protected areas around the globe.
