Making Things With Light
In this workshop, participants will look at how light behaves, and explore many different sources of light that can be used in artworks. We will explore the physics of light: Is it a wave? A particle? Or both? What is the difference between reflection and refraction? What is colour, and how do we see it?
We will look at how to use LEDs, but also go way beyond, exploring incandescent bulbs, neon, fluorescent and luminous materials, lasers, and even chemical and biological sources of light! Along the way, we will look at historical and contemporary examples of light art, and have hands-on experience with various light sources.
