The Chicago Field Museum Campaign Promotes Nature's Bioluminescence

There is something slightly off about the lights featured in the Chicago Field Museum campaign. What at first appears to be a flashlight, street lamp and lighthouse are something else entirely. Upon closer inspection, it becomes clear they are living creatures. Creatures of light, to exact. At least, according to the exhibition being promoted.

The Chicago Field Museum campaign was created by DDB, an ad agency based in Chicago, United States, to bring attention to "nature's bioluminescence." From glowing fungi to shining fishes, the images are pretty surreal. In spite of the fact that such creatures wouldn't be used in the manner they are depicted in the Chicago Field Museum campaign, their very existence could be considered unreal and even mythological.
