Saturated Space 3: Reflections & Refractions

^Spectral Flip, Site Specific Installation by Antoni Malinowski

Thanks to everyone who came to our third event, at and in association with Aid & Abet Cambridge.

Yana Sistovani spoke about the Pre-Socratic atomic theory of colour perception, Ivana Wingham about the physicality of coloured light in relation to Architecture, Brian Hatton about the multiple meanings and uses of coloured material in space from Giotto to Mies' Villa Tugenthat, Antoni Malinowski discussed his site-specific, spatially interactive piece 'Spectral Flip' (see top), and Adam Nathaniel Furman introduced the Cluster, its current state, and future plans.

After the two and a half hours of lectures and discussion, much tea was drunk, and scones eaten, whilst walking around Antoni's interventions in the Gallery, and visiting his nearby facade installation on the CB1 development.

Perception of Colour

A fantastic hour-long podcast on the Perception of colours.

"To what extent is color a physical thing in the physical world, and to what extent is it created in our minds? We start with Sir Isaac Newton, who was so eager to solve this very mystery, he stuck a knife in his eye to pinpoint the answer. Then, we meet a sea creature that sees a rainbow way beyond anything humans can experience, and we track down a woman who we're pretty sure can see thousands (maybe even millions) more colors than the rest of us. And we end with an age-old question, that, it turns out, never even occurred to most humans until very recently: why is the sky blue?"
