    FACTLab: On Reflection, Refraction and Diffraction
    Wednesday 16 December 2015 / 18.00 – 20.00 / Resource Space / FREE / Book Here

    On reflection, refraction and diffraction

    An informal get-together that crosses a reading group with a ’show and tell’ session – exploring different themes through a curated reading list and discussion of objects.

    The first session responds to themes of image, spectacle and technology within the Follow exhibition, though an engagement with phenomenas of light and vision, in particular the difference between reflection, refraction and diffraction.

    Objects to present may be a personal item or a homemade technology, that could include, for example any lens- or light-based media – a magic lantern or a crystal ball!

    The project is a collaboration between current FACT PhD researchers Alex Pearl and Sam Skinner, and FACTLab residents Thiago Hersan and Radamés Ajna, as an opportunity to make different areas of research open and accessible, and to develop a community of readers, thinkers and thingers! that mixes theory and making.

    Reading for the first session will include texts by Donna Haraway and Iris van der Tuin, amongst others.
