     “Tribute to Edison “ - an interactive installation of suspended light bulbs filled with bioluminescent algae (founded in warm coastal waters) attached to the enlarged laser cutouts of the microscopic images of the algae as a single cell. The viewer is encouraged to touch the bulbs so the algae will react by producing the glow. The plankton light cycle was altered by Darya so the viewer can expirience the artwork "in action" during day hours. The idea of biological control and substituting non-living material with living organisms is replayed in this artwork.
