Gaze upon our amazing laser levitation experiment, marvel at it’s green-ness and ability to snatch things out of the air using only light!
Short Course on Quantum Theory for the Public!
I’m excited to announce that our long-running course on Quantum Theory for the Public is available online.
Seeing the Unthinkable / Testing Ground
Finally. FINALLY. After a decade we have added a new experiment to TQW. Welcome, our Paul trap, or electrical levitation device, which levitated tiny tiny diamonds! Made in collaboration with artist Steven Claydon, commissioned by King’s College London. Currently being exhibited at the Science Gallery London as part of it’s Testing Ground exhibition.
Guiding Lights 2022
Wow, what a ride… for the UNESCO International Day of Light 2022, we organized a huge event, with art exhibits, glass blowing and talks. See this page for more details, though honestly, the best thing to do is just to watch this great video.
The Shared Language of Light
James organized a public engagement event associated with the UNESCO International Day of Light and the London Institute of Advanced Light Technologies (London Light). The public were invited to share short videos on the theme of light, you can see all of the entries at the London Light Instagram page.
This was followed by a panel discussion, The Shared Language of Light, featuring professionals from science, art, architecture and design. Check it out here:
International Day of Light 2021
James organized Lighting Up 2021, an 24 hour artwork formed by the shifting light across 6 continents, in celebration of the UNESCO International Day of Light 2021. A short version is shown below, but if you want the full 24 hours (!) you can see here, here, here and here!
James was interviewed by Trebuchet art magazine, to discuss levitating stuff and, er, surrealism. Find him in an extremely philosophical mood by clicking on the image below:
We were featured in this beautiful piece by science journalist and dancer Anna Demming in collaboration with artist Laurene Pilastre. It premiered at Redfest in Bristol.
