The School of Looking investigate the art and science of seeing through their exhibition Invisible Light in the Crawford Art Gallery; funded by Science Foundation Ireland’s (SFI) Discover Programme and developed with scientific collaborators from Tyndall National Institute and Irish Photonic Integration Centre (IPIC).
The exhibition consists of artworks which each investigate a different form of invisible light, from the mysterious gamma ray to the familiar radio wave.
The School of Looking asks if we can imagine colours that we have never seen, what can we learn from X-Rays, Gamma Rays, and Infrared, and can a banana really create music?
Keep an eye on our website and social media for updates on THE SCHOOL OF LOOKING: INVISIBLE LIGHT and Crawford Art Gallery.
