The Light Observer – Magazine Launch;
Presentation “Umi hotaru” by Cecilia Del Gatto.

Macro Museum, Rome

Sept. 23, 2021.

At the launch of the latest issue of The Light Observer magazine, Artist Cecilia Del Gatto presents her project on sea fireflies, bioluminescent animals used by the Japanese military during World War II.
The Light Observer magazine explores the theme of light in a biannual publication. For the occasion, it will present itself to the Roman public doing what it does best: creating unedited content about light, this time in a live performance with artists and editors.
Artist Cecilia del Gatto will present her project on sea fireflies, bioluminescent animals used by the Japanese army during World War II. Instead, artist José Angelino will present one of his video works made with a telescope to capture the moment when two sea currents meet in the light of dawn.
Light is a vast and inspiring subject; it has deeply influenced artists, photographers, filmmakers and scientists. It is part of our daily lives: sunlight, screens, lamps, neon signs. For many of us it exerts an influence on our sensations and perceptions, yet it always remains mysterious and evocative. The Light Observer aims to explore light in all its forms through two publications a year.
The meeting will be held at the auditorium rooftop Free admission subject to availability.
