ARTS/SCIENCE EVENTS FOR FESTIVALS
IVO KOHLER EXPERIENCE
The Ivo Kohler Experience is a light installation that is ideal for special events and festivals. It has been created using a large convex lens and dome inside a dark tent that captures the light from outside and projects it onto the surface of the dome. It is amazing in its simplicity and engaging for all ages. It acts like a huge eye with the projected images on the dome being upside-down. The installation comes with the Ivo Kohler upside-down goggles so that people can try their skills at walking upside down.
UV DRAWING ROOM
UV Drawing Room allows you to draw fantastic light pictures all over the walls of a large dark tent using UV torches.The 5m indoor tent can be installed in any venue and can be used as a short drop-in event for art festivals or open days. It is ideal for science festivals with UV facts delivered throughout the session. (There is also a smaller version of the UV Drawing Room without dark tent that requires a blacked out room.)
The Caravan Obscura is a mobile light installation created by artist, Kenny Bean, playing with the principle of the original camera obscura. Images from the outside are projected onto the ceiling inside the caravan using only lenses and mirrors. Eight people can access the Caravan Obscura at a time for a 10 minute talk about the origins of the travelling obscuras and the science involved. A set of upside down boxes re-creates the famous science experiment by Ivo Kohler who wore upside-down goggles for four weeks.
