This work takes a closer look at the relationship between machine and a natural element. The bioluminescent algae, "P.fusiformis" visualize frequencies higher than 28kHz that cannot be perceived by human auditory perception. When the frequency of inaudible sound penetrates through the bioluminescent algae, each cell visualizes the inaudible sound by glowing themselves. At the same time, the moment of shining also means the death of the cell. Because the ultrasonic waves travel through the plankton and work like a sonic gun, breaking the cells.
