'Through the Looking Glass' 2016
'Catching the Light' 2015, with Shelley James
Glass played a crucial role in enabling man to see beyond the visual eye. In this workshop we discovered how skilled craftsmen learnt how to grind glass and change its composition to revolutionise the way we investigate the microscopic world.
To celebrate the International Year of Light, I assisted Shelley James in presenting a series of workshops that invited staff and patients, associated with Moorfields Eye Hospital Research Institute, to create glass ‘light catchers’ and write a few words on what light meant to them.
‘Art under the Microscope’ 2016
Whipple museum curates an internationally important collection of scientific instruments and models. Participants learn from experts the historic landmark progressions of microscopy and the role glass played; inspired they created their own microscopic glass works.
