Lucy is an investigation into bioluminescence and how this kind of light may be harnessed to its fullest. By documenting the growth of bioluminescent fungi, I observed that I built a relationship with the  organism. I believe this to be the remarkable difference to conventional light sources.
University Project (2019—2020) by Max O'Dell
This initial research allowed me to design a light that enhances the relationship between human and light. One that celebrates the facinating nature of bioluminescence. Lucy is a new kind of light, one you have a relationship with, one that grows on you.
