Talk with the artists and their scientific collaborators focusing on X-ray imagery and on how X ray technology is used in art restoration. The artists will give a guided visit of the Invisible Light exhibition, focusing particularly on the artworks See Through Me and X Renaissance.

The late 19th century was a time of huge innovation, with new scientific advances announced every year. Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen discovered the X-Ray and developed a technique for taking photographs through solid matter, risking his health and that of his wife in the process.

A conventional X ray image is still the same process as Röntgen invented: a black and white photographic film exposed to invisible light emitted by a cathode tube emitting high energy, high frequency light that penetrates tissues opaque to visible light. Though they are negatives, they appear natural to us: white bone, dark tissue.

Talks are free but pre-booking is essential through Eventbrite.
