Symposium “Light InSight” [Session 2] “Art and Science: Regarding Light and Perception”


Whether natural or artificial, visible or invisible, light has always been an important research subject in science -- it's fundamental existence enabling the act of observation. Continuously evolving technology and knowledge about optics has inspired artists, who with their unique vision, spark, and practices, have visualized creativity underlying science, society, and sensory perception. In this session artists and a scientist discuss new possibilities to connect light and the perception.
