Discosphaera is based on a type of single-celled marine micro plant called discosphaera tubifera.
This design has been developed over 30 years by Iona Scott who also creates immersive experiences to visualise this hidden dimension which is so crucial to our existence.

Iona's Stereoscopic 3D animation 'Swimming with phytoplankton in 3D' was on display at The Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew in London between the years of 2014 - 2017.

Pete Morris, Head of The Marine Display at Kew said 'Well it was fantastic as the marine micro plants are so vital and your display was a wonderful way to show them'.

Discosphaera has been exhibited in multiple locations spanning the last 30 years and in 2016 was shortlisted for Wildlife Artist of the Year.

Micropia Museum, part of ARTIS Royal Amsterdam Zoo purchased a Discosphaera Light Sculpture in 2019 and commissioned two more to coincide with the Amsterdam Festival of Light in 2019/2020.

Jasper Buikx, Head of Micropia said 'We are really excited to have the three plankton light sculptures at Micropia this Winter. This year we are partners with The Amsterdam Festival of Light and this participating exhibit perfectly illustrates our ethos to make the invisible visible in original and unique ways'.
