Experiments with Diffraction Grating

What is Diffraction Grating?

In response to the new Stage 3 and Stage 4 restrictions, we're offering 20 additional framed sheets of diffraction grating for community members that will be posted out free of charge.

 

Diffraction Grating is a clear film that reveals the spectrum of a light source transforming what you see into a kaleidoscopic rainbow. 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 exhibition projections.

What do I need to do?

Experiment, play, document then send us your photos or videos of the visible light spectrums in your environment.

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.

When do you need to know by?

Register before August 21st 

When will you post it?

We'll post it to the address provided on the registration form August 23rd. 

When do I need to send you photos or video by?

Covid-19 Strategy 

  • Make at home materials packs are prepared while wearing gloves and masks. All materials are sanitised before being distributed to families.

  • Before returning your recycled plastic stained glass window, please place it back in the bag provided and seal. We will sanitise your artwork before returning it families. 

Public use of photos and videos

  • By submitting your photos and videos you agree for the indirect Object and its agents to use the material submitted - online, in public broadcast (exhibition), for marketing and promotional purposes.

  • Please provide the name of the artist/s with your images / videos / artwork - all participants will be credited where identified.

How we will use your submitted photos / videos

  • You authorise the indirect Object or its agents to edit submitted photos / videos for content and clarity. Your photos / video may be combined with other images for creative effect. 

  • Your submitted photos / videos are part of a larger community project - the indirect Object and its agents reserve the right to edit, digitally manipulate, or otherwise alter submitted images for the purpose of creating a larger artwork.

  • Original sound content of videos will not be used

  • Please DO NOT SUBMIT images with recognisable likenesses of children or adults. Any images with recognisable likenesses of children or adults will not be used. 

  • Please do not submit selfies. 

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.
