The dark abyss of the ocean is the place on Earth that we know the least about. It is populated by photo-luminescent creatures that flicker to the rhythm of their environment's sound frequencies to produce undersea "light-shows," a behavior that inspired the concept behind French artist Loris Greaud's ambitious new project, developed in collaboration with Performa, MIT Sea Grant College Program, and Carnegie Mellon. This ongoing project will launch on November 19, 2009 in Abu Dhabi with breathtaking fireworks designed by the internationally acclaimed pyrotechnicians Groupe F that will recreate the bioluminescence of deep-sea creatures, featuring the experimental hip hop group Antipop Consortium. Then, the New York premiere of the video of this elemental sky sculpture, which will be recorded in HD and 35 mm, will be presented on the Times Square LED screens of News Astrovision by Panasonic, NASDAQ and Thomson Reuters as part of Performa 09.
