Colour: See the world in a new light

12 June – 31 August 2020 - 

Free Entry

See colour as you’ve never seen it before in this exhibition developed by Questacon - the National Science and Technology Centre and presented at the Ipswich Art Gallery.

Is your yellow the same as mine? How do pixels and paint differ? Have you ever wanted to see UV light like an insect?

Engage with more than 25 interactive experiences, ranging from coloured bubbles to iridescent insects to colour illusions. Explore how light influences colour, and compare your perception of colour with your family and friends. ‘See like a bee’ with the ultraviolet camera; take a high-resolution image of your eye; and see glowing quantum nanomaterials that change their colour with crystal size. The exhibition will show the power colour has on the choices you make every day, and on your responses to your environment.

Bookings Essential. To comply with Queensland Government guidelines which limit attendance to 20 visitors at a time, visitors are required to pre-book a 90-minute session.
