Yingri Guan Creates The Diatom Lights Illumination

Yingri Guan, the author of the displayed project Diatom Lights by Yingri Guan points out, Inspired by the phenomenal contributions diatom algae bring to our world, Yingri generates a series of molecular outlines based on detailed analysis of diatom's geometric structure. She then transforms and abstracts the data into generative outlines through constructing a series of equations and formulas. Through algorithmic simulation and manipulation, the outlines are layered on top of each other based on diatom wall formations. The final visualization is in the form of light as diatoms convert light energy to chemical energy for other organisms' consumption. .
