Presentation Title:

  • The Dark Side of Light



  • While incredible amounts of information on the Universe have been gathered in the last decades using optical means and have dramatically sharpened our understanding of the Cosmos, the outcome is that the overwhelming fraction of our world remains invisible, either through the limitations of our senses (whether natural or technologically expanded) or because those invisible domains simply do not interact with light. Photographing, imaging or otherwise apprehending these and thus overcoming the limitations linked to our reliance on light requires re-evaluating our assumptions, broadening our toolkit and reconsidering what we mean by seeing, as will be exemplified via a range of explorations of these invisible domains and the occasional conceptual consequences of such attempts.
