  • Need another reason to attend IMET's Open House? Come to see “What is the Shape of Water?” A cross-species dialog with bioluminating organisms by @UMBC Visual Art Professor Lisa Moren and @UMCES -IMET Marine Biology Professor, Dr. Tsvetan Bachvaroff.

    The single-cell dinoflagellate is a primary food source for the animals living in the Inner Harbor. Also called phytoplankton, these independent gems produce their own food and light through photosynthesis. An artist and marine biologist will show the audience how they can communicate with the dinoflagellates through voice and light.
