Sculpting With Light

The last in the series of public talks from the Sculpting with Light project takes place on September 21st, 6pm-7.30pm at Ushaw College. Entry is free, and there will be an opportunity to see work in progress from the project in a show and tell, also at Ushaw from 3.30-5.30 pm. The talk will introduce the sculpture of the medieval universe Alexandra is creating for the Durham University Dante exhibition, and explore the thought of 13th century thinkers, principally Robert Grosseteste on the physical nature of the universe, its structures and its existence, with a final consideration of Dante’s majestic vision of the cosmos at the end of his Divine Comedy.
