To celebrate the unique architecture of a dike in the Netherlands, Afsluitdijk, Studio Roosegaarde built three unique installations. One of the installations, GLOWING NATURE is an interactive experience with live bioluminescent algae in a historical bunker. When walked on the algae activates, this interaction plays with the idea of bioluminescent algae being the streetlights of the future.
“GLOWING NATURE shows the beauty of nature on the Afsluitdijk by means of a unique encounter between man, biology, and technology.” – Excerpt from Studio Roosegaarde’s website.
