Opening event | Saturday 30 April 6pm
Performance | Saturday 21 May 4pm
If you drop a stone into a quiet pond, waves spread out over the surface of the water…A scientist would say that a tossed stone has energy, and that water waves can carry some of this energy to a floating stick. Energy has many forms, but it is not something that you can see or hold in your hand. You can think of energy as something that can make things change.
– Ira M. Freeman, 1965 All About Light and Radiation. Random House: New York, 51.
