Exhibition - Colour: what do you mean by that?
Colour: What Do You Mean By That? This cross-disciplinary exhibition presents work by artists, designers and scientists using or investigating colour phenomena, qualities, and meanings. What is colour: frequency, wavelength, energy… resonance, material, sensation... perception, illusion, association... emotive embodied experience? The question opens up connections between diverse understandings and ways of knowing.

Art-Science in the development of ICECUBE Volumetric LED Displays
by Mark-David Hosale & Ron Allison (York University), and James Madsen (University of Wisconsin-River Falls)
A conversation between artist, scientist and engineer about visualization and colour, in the conception and development of the ICECUBE LED Display [ILDm^3]. The ICECUBE LED Display [ILDm^3] is a cubic-meter (1/1000th scale) model of the IceCube Neutrino Observatory, a cubic-kilometer telescope made of ice just below the surface at the South Pole. While scientifically precise, the display uses art methodologies as an optimal means for expressing imperceptible astrophysical events as sound, light and colour in the domain of the human sensorium. The 45 minute talk will be followed by Q&A period.
