Co-presented with the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning and Department of Theatre and Performance Studies Leading theatrical designers Michael Scott-Mitchell and Nick Schlieper will join Associate Professor Branka Spehar, who specialises in the psychology of visual perception, to present a panel discussion about light and colour effects and their implications for performance, architecture and visual perception.

The discussion will be chaired by Associate Professor Wendy Davis, who is head of Illumination in the Faculty of Architecture, Design and  Planning.

The panelists are among the most knowledgeable, experienced and innovative Australian designers, scholars and theatre practitioners.

Join us for what will be an informed and very stimulating discussion.

This exciting discussion will be held in conjunction with a residency at the Rex Camphorn Studio by Jo Elliott, who will be exploring the potential for the manipulation of the apparent size of space using theatrical lighting techniques. The light scenes developed during the residency will be used in formal experiments for her Ph.D. thesis.
