Explore light through art and science with Dr Jonathan Hare’s Voice on a Lightbeam workshop in response to A Certain Kind of Light. Based on one of the challenges from the Death Valley series of Rough Science (BBC2) we will learn how to use light not only to send morse code messages but incredibly actually put your own voice on the light - an experiment that in principle, could be used to communicate across the vacuum of space.
