On Friday the 16th of December, celebrate themes of Light and Space with Making in Transit, beginning with some exceptional cosmic drinks.
Following last year’s groundbreaking Rosetta/Philae comet-landing, Rosetta team member Dr Marina Galand (European Space Agency, Space and Atmospheric Physics Group at Imperial College) will discuss recent discoveries from the mission. Continuing this spatial theme, artist Annie Carpenter (Arctic Circle Residency 2015 participant) will talk about her experience in the Arctic focuing on her work in physics and art. Architect Rhiannon Morgan-Hatch (RCA, Other Works) will illuminate the topic of design, materials, space and environment - and how we create environements where we create a sence of space.
The evening's workshops continue with experiments using light and our camera obscura with Rachel Guardiola. Next, discover the relationships between design and mathematics with Jiggling Atoms by creating fantastical mathematical decorations: using sheets of circular card discs and yarn: with theses simple materials you can create a range of mesmerising mathematical sculptures depicting fantastic geometries - a suprising but wonderful christmas gift!
