' Pyrocystis Fusiformis ' is an interactive installation , which focuses on merging scale of two different environments — macro and micro. On microscopic plane the suspended ceiling is the artistic rendering of sea water sample under microscope, which is being cut out of foam and put together in order to create an illusion of underwater experience. The sculptural arrangement of plexiglass cutouts as single cells is distributed around the tanks. The tanks are filled with bioluminescent algae ( the circadian cycle has been altered by Darya - the algae glows during day time hours ). The viewer is encouraged to use inoculation rods to activate the algae — the plankton will follow the movement of the rod  with intense blue light. The mirrored environment is the focal point of  viewer's perspective-he/she is welcome to imagine themselves as a part of marine ecosystem ( micro) and observe the system in action with the naked eye ( macro).
