Light Works exhibition now open
Curated by photographic scientist Gary Evans, Light Works is a virtual journey through the electromagnetic spectrum from gamma rays to radio waves, showing how each kind of 'light' is used in our everyday lives through science, technology and medicine. The exhibition uses 50 images to explore ways of looking at ourselves and the world around us, in a journey that takes in our own bodies and reaches out to the depths of space.
Over the course of 2015, Light Works will travel to public locations across the UK. The free exhibtion will be on display to the public during 2015:
Prof Martin Barstow, President of the Royal Astronomical Society, commented: "It is wonderful to see such incredible images from astronomy being presented in this way to the public. However, what is enlightening about this exhibition is experiencing the beauty and power of the images taken at the opposite scale to astronomical images or taken within different parts of the electromagnetic spectrum. These images offer everyone a way to see the world around us in a completely fresh light."
