Talk with the artists and their scientific collaborators about animal vision, including a guided tour of the Invisible Light exhibition focusing on optical illusions and the  visible spectrum.

We call the central band of the electromagnetic spectrum, the part that we and some other primates see, “visible light”, but in fact most animals do not see colours as we do. Mammals (horses, dogs, cats...) are mostly dichromats, and see wavelengths in the blue and yellow areas of the spectrum. The Mantis Shrimp has four times as many colour receptors as we do. But what can a creature with such a relatively tiny brain do with all this colour information?

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