Artists Anne Cleary and Denis Connolly, founders of The School of Looking, investigate the art and science of seeing in this series of lunchtime talks on their exhibition INVISIBLE LIGHT at 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 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?

This week the focus is on VISIBLE LIGHT: The Animal Colour Debate. We know that most animals see colours differently from how we see them – some see more colours, some see fewer. This artwork is a light-hearted investigation of how colour may appear to animal eyes.
