On Saturday the 14th March I organised Biolumination II as part of thinkScience day at the 2015 Auckland Arts Festival. I challenged a group of artists and illustrators to each come up with a work of art using just a solution of harmless bioluminescent bacteria and a collection of 25 x 25 cm square petri-dishes. I want to introduce you to each of the artists and show off their amazing pieces.

Meet Rodrigo Vidal!


Rodrigo finished his interior design studies in 2007 in Santiago, Chile. After spending 4 great years learning from a beautiful team and developing his passion for furniture and interior design, he decided a change was needed and went traveling. While in India Rodrigo developed his love of illustration, which he is continuing to develop working as part of the design team at TILE SPACE – ELLERSLIE. Rodrigo draws his own life, his own stories and points of view about the here and now.
