Parsons Event - Questioning Light


What if a piece of glass could slow the passage of light so much that you could see into the past? Could artificial moons that reflect sunlight illuminate the nightscape? How would the built environment be different if we designed to darkness requirements?

From materials to optics, instincts to cosmos, and reality to perception, this presentation illustrates how much more there is to know about light. The lecture will be immediately followed by a reception, featuring an immersive, student-designed installation by the Parsons Light-Space Art class.
