Workshops and discussions with the artists and their scientific collaborators about ultraviolet light. Focusing particularly on the UV Tipi and Made to Fade (both working with UV light), the artists will give a guided tour of the Invisible Light exhibition and a talk about how we might consider colours we can never see…

UV radiation was discovered by Johann Wilhelm Ritter in 1801, who dubbed it “Chemical Rays”, observing that the radiation made silver chloride turn black. Flowers have pigments that reflect UV, just as they have pigments that reflect visible light, and these pigments are visible to the UV sensitive eyes of navigating bees. But what do these colours look like? Can we even imagine a colour that a bee can see but that we cannot?

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