Light and Dark Matters: Harnessing Light

21 November, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

£12

From gas lamps to LEDs and medical lasers, a panel of artists, scientists and theorists asks what role light plays in the discovery of new frontiers in art, design, technology and medicine?

With artists Roger Hiorns and Flow Motion, professor and engineer Harald Hass and professor of physics Kishan Dholakia. This event will be chaired by Sean Cubitt.

Over twenty four hours at Tate Modern leading artists, scientists, philosophers, theorists and the public come together to debate, share and uncover our contemporary experience of light, dark and dark matter. What are the many forms of light and dark that surround us? How do we harness this energy and what do we imagine for the future? Explore these questions and more through sunrise and sunset walks, talks & discussions and collaborative workshops.

Part of the International Year of Light in collaboration with the Institute of Physics
