The SAF presents Bioluminescence – BIOMIMICRY “Into the Light”, a video art production by Manolis Anastasakos, artistic director of the 1st BIO ART FESTIVAL, organized by Biomimicry Greece Research & Innovation.
“While sailing in these latitudes on one very dark night, the sea presented a wonderful and most beautiful spectacle. There was a fresh breeze, and every part of the surface, which during the day is seen as foam, now glowed with a pale light. The vessel drove before her bows two billows of liquid phosphorus, and in her wake she was followed by a milky train. As far as the eye reached, the crest of every wave was bright, and the sky above the horizon, from the reflected glare of these livid flames, was not so utterly obscure, as over the rest of the heavens.”
