Light, Art and Science Meet in the Gallery

Main Article Content

Peter Stupples


The Art and Light Project in Dunedin was part of the programme of the UNESCO Year of Light and Light-Based Technoligies. It was generously supported by the University of Otago, the Dodd-Walls Centre for Photonic and Quantum Technologies, the Otago Museum and the Dunedin School of Art at the Otago Polytechnic. It was also assisted by a grant from Creative New Zealand through the Creative Communities Scheme locally managed by the Dunedin City Council.

This edition of Junctures contains papers further developed by some of the artists and scientists as a result of their cooperation and experience. It embellishes the brief introduction to their work already published in the catalogue and serves as a further tribute to the creative energy expended
over that eight-month period.
