Project proposal

My project will involve lichens and bioluminescent creatures. I'm interested in self-generated light - like the light that trees and grass and all living things take on in the hour before the sun rises, preparing to bloom with their own inner light. Lichens are a familiar sight this far north, while bioluminescent algae come from further away, brought by sailors with tales of a "milky sea." I hope to invoke biorhythms and chronobiology as a way of understanding rhythm as a crucial element of life on earth.
