The dancing astronaut was pretty rad, but my favourites of the night were definitely “Biolumination” (bioluminescent bacteria Vibrio fisheri) by Dr. Siouxsie Wiles & Rebecca Klee, and the low-fi, interactive zoetrope-like projection device, “Kaleidoscope” by Laura Cibilich, both artists of whom I had the pleasure of meeting on the night.
