Bioluminescence in Art and Science with Edie Widder

This is an image placeholder which helps make the video responsive. There is nothing to see.

Dr. Edie Widder spoke at the National Museum of Natural History as a part of the Changing Tides Lecture Series and discussed her work on underwater light: light chemically produced by animals through a process called bioluminescence. The beauty of light-producing animals intersects with light art in Dr. Widder's talk. Read more about her work diving and observing deep-sea bioluminescence, and see other Changing Tides lectures.
