Programme update, Ether and news

Sculpting With Light

Well, there has been a lot going on over the last few weeks. Alexandra and various members of the academic team took part in a week-long summer school at Oxford over the first week of August. This took place at Pembroke College as part of its award-winning access to university scheme. Sixth-form students from across the UK, and from rural India, and Boston Massachusetts gathered for a week of intense learning and teaching based around medieval science and its modern analogues.

The play of light was amazing, and the blend of materials, space and light, created a structure drawing on both medieval and modern cosmology.
