Professor Roy Sambles is former President of the Institute of Physics and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 2002 for a wide range of pioneering experimental studies in the physics of light, including exploring the optical properties of liquid crystals used in flat screen colour displays, and the iridescence of coloured butterfly wings. He will demonstrate some of the ways in which colour and light may be created.
Internationally acclaimed artist David Batchelor has been experimenting with colour as it is experienced in the modern urban environment for over 25 years. He has also published several books and essays on colour and colour theory.
This lecture has been organised in partnership with the Institute of Physics and will be hosted at Helston Community College's North Site Hall.
