CAST presents a lecture by Roy Sambles, Professor of Experimental Physics at the University of Exeter and artist David Batchelor.
Professor Roy Sambles is former President of the Institute of Physics and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 2002 for a wide range of pioneering experimental studies in the physics of light, including exploring the optical properties of liquid crystals used in flat screen colour displays, and the iridescence of coloured butterfly wings. He will demonstrate some of the ways in which colour and light may be created.
Internationally acclaimed artist David Batchelor has been experimenting with colour as it is experienced in the modern urban environment for over 25 years. He has also published several books and essays on colour and colour theory.
This lecture has been organised in partnership with the Institute of Physics and will be hosted at Helston Community College.
The public programme at CAST is supported by Arts Council England, as part of Groundwork 2016-18, which has been awarded Ambition for Excellence funding. Ambition for Excellence is a new programme aimed at stimulating and supporting ambition, talent and excellence across the arts sector in England. The fund aims to have significant impact on the growth of an ambitious international-facing arts infrastructure, especially outside London.
