Playing with bioluminescence and light-painting

By running around Kim, we activated the glowing plankton, creating that light-painting shape out of the living creatures.

“The otherworldly images were created along the beach of Isla Holbox — an island located several miles north of Cancun, Mexico — as part of the International Public Art Festival (IPAF) in April. Organizers for the festivals asked Paré to see what he could create by applying his light painting techniques to an environment filled with these fascinating glow-in-the-dark microorganisms.” - MNN
