On LightFour days of performance, discussion, activity and art illuminate our relationship with light. Beginning on Friday 1st May with a late night event across the five floors of the expanded Wellcome Collection, On Light presents light-filled performances from Fevered Sleep, the award winning storytellers The Crick Crack Club and Mariele Neudecker. On Saturday 2nd May UCL will throw open the doors of the Institute of Making for a day of investigations into materials that we use to make and manipulate light. And on the final day, visitors can see the finished effect of Andy Field's 'Non In Luce' installation, a model-city built over the first three days of the event, showing a new way of communicating without light.

 

About Wellcome Collection

A major and fascinating cultural venue, the Wellcome Collection combines three galleries: 'Medicine Man', 'Medicine Now' and 'special exhibitions'. In addition you'll find the famous Wellcome Library, cafe, bookshop and a 'forum' to consider issues of science, health and human identity. The 1,300 objects on display show the great variety of considerations that these topics include. More about Wellcome Collection
