Disrupt – Matter / Tom Flynn Workshop
25 September 2015
18.30 – 17.30

The Matter / Tom Flynn Workshop offers you the chance to make your own Stress Birefringence with artist Tom Flynn.

Birefringence is caused when light passes through a material with molecules of no uniformity. When the material is stressed or layered, the ray’s speed is altered and polarisation causes a variety of colours to occur. By magnifying and capturing the results of this process, Tom Flynn’s work looks into the phenomenon with a pseudo-scientific methodology; its objectivity being interrupted by the awe of the scientific.

Tom Flynn’s series titled ‘Stress Birefringence’ is currently on show in The Silverprint Gallery as part of the Matter Collective exhibition Disrupt. Matter is a photography collective that started as a means of bringing together photography and moving image work through events, exhibitions and publications.

No booking required, just come down and join in.
