RAY DAY 6 – MICROWAVES: Sacred Relic
Free to attend but pre-booking is essential through Eventbrite.
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 the MICROWAVE. The Cosmic Microwave Background is the oldest light in the universe. A true relic ofthe beginning of everything, it has faded to invisible microwaves….
