Experiments with Diffraction Grating

What is Diffraction Grating?

A diffraction grating is a thin film with small ridges. When a light source is viewed through a diffraction grating, the grating optically splits the light into different wavelengths – meaning you see the visible spectrum of wavelengths of a light through the grating.

Experiment! Take photos or video and send them to us or post to instagram with the hashtag #reflections2020geelong

Your images will become part of our third weekly theme – Spectrum.

What do I need to do?

We have 10 framed sheets of diffraction grating for community members to take home and use to explore natural and artificial light. Experiment, play, document then send us your photos or videos of visible light spectrums

What materials do I need to provide?

Your imagination!

Do I need my own camera?

Yes, use your camera or phone to take photos / videos.

Can I keep the Diffraction Grating?

Yes you can.

Pick up date

Sunday, Sept. 6th 11am-2pm, 171 Moorabool Street Geelong

I have an artwork / different idea - can I submit something else?

Yes you can! If you have an existing artwork that is illuminated, transparent or plays with light please let us know. We will support local artists to display their existing artworks during Reflections 2020 in the following ways:

  • Assistance with installation 

  • Assistance with OH&S 

  • Assistance with Test & Tagging of any mains powered elements.

My idea has naughty words or nudity?

This isn't the right opportunity for that (at least, not the current program). Please be aware that artworks are exhibited in street facing windows, and the program has a family focus. If we get enough interest from more adult works - we'll run a separate program.
