Edith Isdal


Edith Isdal has a background from design and architecture. Her work explores diverse media and methods, analogue and digital – with the goal of creating visual and engaging experiences.

At LUX she will talk about her exhibited installation “Living Light” – and share her experiences with growing bioluminescent algae – and creating a light installation based on living organisms.

Living Light is an audiovisual installation exploring and combining the fields of biology, design and art – incorporating the monocellular algae Dinoflagella Pyrocystis Fusformis which use photosynthesis as a source of energy. At night this type of algae demonstrates bioluminescense when physically disturbed and emits short bursts of blue light – lasting only for a brief second – before returning to darkness.
