Perceiving Light: Shadow, Image, Transparency Workshop

21st March 2014, 09:00 to 22nd March 2014, 17:00, IAS Seminar Room, Cosin's Hall, Palace Green

The goal of the workshop is to generate discussion on a range of objects of visual experience that arguably have no non-visual nature – for instance, shadows, rainbows and reflections; the re-presentation of such items in art (for example in photography); and on the nature of appearances and images more generally.

A set of master-classes will explore the possibility of perceiving light-filled regions, as well as transparent and translucent media.

Timings to be confirmed in due course.
