Mixing light at the Maxwell.

There’s an excellent Kettle’s Yard exhibition at the Maxwell centre in Cambridge.  James Clerk Maxwell was a physicist who worked with colour and vision, amongst other things, so the basis of my family workshop yesterday was additive colour mixing with light.  I had 3 OHP’s (red, green, blue) and a lovely large space, families could come and make little interventions on any or all of the OHPs to make their own enormous colour mixed images.  I’d love to do some more experiments on this theme, especially with Emily Tracy.
