Playing With Light

Visitors to Scienceworks are invited to see the world in a whole new light as they dodge through security lasers, paint in infrared and manipulate the colour of their shadows in the new exhibition Playing with Light.
Using innovative and interactive exhibitions to encourage free play, Playing with Light explores the physics and applications of light in everyday life.
“Most of us would rarely stop to think about light, yet it is integral to the world we live in – but what is it exactly?” asks Genevieve Fahey, Manager of Scienceworks.
“This exhibition will give people the chance to understand the properties of light which are behind the things we often take for granted; vision, the beauty of rainbows or paintings, even the high tech world of fibre optic communication and laser surgery.
“Playing with Light provides a visual feast from start to finish, with a highlight of the exhibition being the welcome entrance – an interactive tunnel containing more than 20,000 motion sensitive LED’s.”
Visitors to Scienceworks will also be able to test their espionage skills as they duck and weave their way through a room protected by security lasers, as well as have the opportunity to harness their inner artists by painting in infrared light.
Playing with Light opens to the public tomorrow and will run until 3 February 2013.
Entry is included with general admission.
