above: from TED, The weird, wonderful world of bioluminescence with Edith Widder. There’s a review about an exhibit at Museum of Natural History in NY opening 31 March in the NYT [ details ] Surprisingly it appears in Art & Design and not Science. The article led me to the TED talk on bioluminescence and demonstrates an art and design, I guess, found in creatures who reside in dark surroundings or do their thing at night like the firefly. The light emitted from these creatures may be a cry for help, a mating call, or a distraction to confuse if under a threat of attack. I think of weapons and LED’s, Avatar and the Tree of Life, and I think of art and design.
