Glow, a one-night public art festival in Santa Monica on Saturday September 28, 2013 that attracted more than 150,000 people to view 15 ‘out of the box’ interactive art exhibits, was located right on the beach surrounding the Santa Monica pier:
In collaboration with LA artist Glenn Kaino, we developed a bioluminescence wishing well. Visitors waited in line for their turn, then approached the well, made a wish, and then throw in their coin(s), with the resulting bioluminescence validating their wish.

Proceeds of $300 were donated to Heal the Bay, a non-profit environmental organization working to restore the health of Santa Monica Bay.
