The School of Looking: INVISIBLE LIGHT | UV tipi

UV TIPI: a contemplative environment of flourescent minerals, pigments and fabrics

Ultraviolet (UV) light is visible to some animals, in particular to foraging insects and birds. Should we then consider this light as colour? And is it possible for us to represent or even imagine colour that our own eyes have never seen?

Many freckles are only visible in UV. © The School of Looking.

There are cameras that can capture invisible colours and display them to us as visible colours, but a more natural form of translation is the fluorescence of materials that absorb UV and emit visible light.
