Alga is a pendant light inspired by the molecular structure of Algae. Algae grows in the presence of water and thus is exempt from the laws of gravity. This means the molecular structure is extremely unique with organic circular shapes forming its structure. The influence of the Noctilucae Scintillans algae in this hybrid, pendant light and art installation, is immediately apparent. The light not only replicates the molecular structure of this unique organism, but also its inherent bioluminescent characteristics. Through research into this particular algae, as well as other organic organisms, it became apparent to me that I should base my entire design on this natural phenomenon.
