Tell your friends about Bioluminescent


Description : In the Abyss of the ocean there is so much to explore. Light and shade plays a massive part of survival. The creatures that live beneath have complicated systems designed to live in the most difficult eco system on the planet. Their appearance plays a big part in their survival. The firefly squid, also known as the sparkling enope squid, is a species of squid in the family Enoploteuthidae. It is the sole species in the monotypic genus Watasenia. When tens of thousands of them come together they create a stunning electric-blue display that is one of the most arresting and colourful marvels on Earth.
From March to June, these tiny bioluminescent cephalopods ignite the 14km-long shoreline of Toyama Bay
They rise from the inky dark waters. This is their reproductive time, and a party, rave like session takes place, until their fun is cut short and they are caught in Man’s nets. Their fate defined on Restaurant tables.
Growing up in Papua New Guinea and North Queensland, I have always had an affinity for the Sea. After seeing a David Attenborough documentary on Bioluminescent-cephalopods some years ago. It has ignited a fascination for me of these remarkable creatures of the deep. It is my intention to create an exhibition that has to be seen in a darkened room, to fully appreciate how these creatures live in the dark. This artwork is one of a few I have already completed in my goal of a full exhibition. I feel it is an artist’s duty to see beauty in the world, where other’s may not, and bring it into the spotlight.
