Transduced Ecologies: guerilla glow

Daylight, Twilight and Night

Daylight, Twilight and Night

This work explores my concept of “Microgeography” which amongst other aims,  embraces playful and inventive strategies which might take pedestrians off their predictable macroscopic paths and jolt them into a new awareness of the urban microbiological landscape. Here is such an intervention. Where there is opportunity life always finds a home. Fractures in the hard manmade continuum of our urban environments, cracks harbour overlooked but wondrous ecologies that are all underpinned by microbial activity.  Here the natural ecology of a crack between concrete paving stones in a public has been carefully and secretly removed and replaced by a natural deep marine ecology containing bioluminescent bacteria in order to draw attention to what is normally overlooked.
