Light and Dark Matters: The Power of Light
20 November, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm£12
How does light help us understand space and time? How does it shape our material world and how do we shape light through technology, architecture, art and design?
Robbert Dijkgraaf, Director and Leon Levy Professor at the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton and internationally acclaimed artist Liliane Lijn discuss the power of light, its transformative and unifying qualities, and what fascinates and fuels scientists and artists to experiment with and make advancements with this energy.
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.
