Opening Reception of Chamber of Wonders!
Join us for the opening reception of the Chamber of Wonders: Artwork by Lisa Moren with Dr. Tsvetan Bachvaroff, on December 14, from 5-8 p.m. Come and see an exhibit like no other! An artist and marine biologist have collaborated to present the exhibition “Chamber of Wonders” a series of hands-on installations and displays telling the invisible stories of living microbes under the surface of the Chesapeake Bay. Photography, hand-made objects and painted assemblages alongside multi-media, live microbes, augmented reality and animation and sound will be interacting with live data streaming in from the Chesapeake Bay water. Visitors will see and experience microbes, talk to bioluminescent ones and learn how Bay data is used to tell stories in several installations and in augmented reality. Installations will include Under the Bay presented for the first time as a mixed reality experience and What is the Shape of Water? where viewers are invited to talk to ancient microbes or ask questions such as what is the shape of water?’ and the seemingly invisible critters will be excited enough to answer any questions in turbulent shapes of blue light.
