The Future of Light Art: Laura Na Liu | Dynamic Plasmonic Color Displays
The Future of Light Art
- 08.02.2018 to 09.02.2018
Light is a messenger from the universe. The arts are the messengers of light.
Everything we know, we know from light – that is the claim by astrophysics at least. One thing is clear: From quantum optics (»The Angular Momentum of Light«) to chronobiology, from nano-optics to photonics, a new frontier of scientific research on the nature of light is emerging. These options, which offer us new theories and practices of light, from biophysical chemistry to the lithosphere, also have an impact on artistic possibilities.
For this reason, renowned experts and institutions from the sciences and arts of light met at the symposium „The Future of Light Art“ at the ZKM | Karlsruhe from February 8 - 9th, 2018, to open up the new horizon of the light spectrum in an exchange of experiences.
Prof. Dr. Laura Na Liu is professor at the Kirchhoff Institute for Physics at the University of Heidelberg. Her group focuses on developing smart optical nanosystems for answering structural biology questions as well as catalytic chemistry questions in local environments.
