ect of scientific and artistic explorations as well as observations of natural phenomena such as photosynthesis, sunsets and rainbows, noted SPIE CEO Eugene Arthurs.
“The capability to generate light was truly a revolution,” Arthurs said. “Just think of how different our winters would be without the ability to flip a switch and lengthen the day.”
In our modern times, photonics — the science of light — provides us with much more.
“Photonics-enabled technologies connect us with friends and family via the internet and smartphones, enable our doctors to find the exact cells in the body that need treatment with lasers or other light-based methods, keep firefighters and soldiers safe, power sustainable lighting and energy sources, and explore the universe through ground- and spaced-based telescopes,” Arthurs said.
Artists participating in “The Art of Light and Technology” exhibition are:
Gregory Dotson, who works with theoretical physicists to create computer-generated images that represent visual depictions of quantum objects and events
- Francie Allen, a dancer at heart whose sculptures of fabricated wire embodying that love of movement are enlivened by lighting – and the resulting shadows
- Bryan McLinney, who has worked in neon for more than 20 years and creates blown-glass sculptures which light up with the help of these luminous gases.
SPIE is the international society for optics and photonics, a not-for-profit organization founded in 1955 to advance light-based technologies. The Society serves nearly 235,000 constituents from approximately 155 countries, offering conferences, continuing education, books, journals, and a digital library in support of interdisciplinary information exchange, professional networking, and patent precedent. SPIE provided over $3.2 million in sup
