Infinity Cube

Apr 7 - ongoing

Birch Aquarium at Scripps is launching Infinity Cube, a new, immersive art installation that explores bioluminescence by combining glowing creatures with world-class science, high-tech projection and an original soundscape. Step into an 8-foot cube and become surrounded by video projections of single-celled marine organisms - called dinoflagellates - reacting to various stimulants such as the human heartbeat, music, water flow, and air pressure. Through activities and interpretation accompanying the installation, guests will have opportunities to learn more about the phenomenon of living light and how marine species use it for camouflage, protection and communication.
