Visualising the invisible
In this workshop, we explore everyday phenomena through a series of hands-on experiments, from creating a microcosmos inside a coffee cup to psychedelic liquid light shows using domestic substances. Will perform ad-hock / low tech experiments using everyday materials, combining sound, magnets, light and liquids to create unique optical effects and images. For reference, consider early sci-fi special effects to the striking black and white images of scientific phenomena by Berenice Abbot. And the psychedelic liquid light shows 1960s using household chemicals and pond life.
