About this Event

Brian Tanner and Colin Rennie

Light, Science and Art. What happens when the wonderful complexities of light in all its forms, as understood by modern science meet the intricacies of modern art? Brian Tanner, leading physicist and winner of the Gabor Medal, and Colin Rennie, glass artist and academic, both from the UK, will take you on a journey from X-Ray Imaging via Radio Astronomy to 3D glass sculpture inspired by the science of the rainbow. And not just any scientific theory of the rainbow. This one is a creative fusion between 13th century European theories and modern vision science. Light, seen and unseen, in its qualities and potentials, unlocks the universe. So too light unlocks artistic inspiration and experience – as you will find out.

The talk is part of a series curated by the Ordered Universe Research Project and Durham University, UK, for the 2019 Napa Lighted Festival – Beyond.
