Light and Dark Matters: Instagram Light Project with Oliver Lang

21 November, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Free

How does light transform through photography? Mobile photography has become a global medium and an established form of visual communication. In the lead up to Light and Dark Matters, Oliver Lang invites you and your mobile phone camera to capture the transformational effects of light and share them on Instagram. In a special event, a selection of London’s most active Instagrammers document leading scientific institutions’ research into the use of light, to inspire you to contribute your own experience of the power of light to #lightdarkmatters.

On Saturday 21 November, view a selection of these images curated by Oliver Lang and join him in an open workshop exploring what you can do with your mobile phone, alternative light sources and special devices from Imperial College London.

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
