Description

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. The Infinity Cube opens April 7 and is included in the cost of Birch Aquarium admission, which is $18.50 for adults, $14 for children ages 3 to 17 and free for children 2 and under. Annual memberships are also available. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit aquarium.ucsd.edu or call 858.534.FISH. Image © Iyvone Khoo 2016.
