About

This is a interactive particle vectorfield installation. It is inspired by bioluminescent life forms living in coastal waters like the dinoflaggelates.
Bioluminescence is a form of chemiluminescence where light energy is released by a chemical reaction. This reaction involves a light-emitting pigment, the luciferin, and a luciferase, the enzyme component. Coelenterazine (c26h21n3o3) is a luciferin, a light-emitting molecule, found in many aquatic organisms. It is oxidised (o2) to produce light.
