Haroon Mirza has won international acclaim for installations that test the interplay and friction between sound and light waves, and electric current.
Mirza will discuss his new intervention Aestival Infinato (Solar Symphony 11), a project conceived especially for the Deer Shelter Skyspace at YSP, which extends the language of land art to reference a long history of human creativity in relation to the sun, of channeling its power, and giving it a shape and voice.
Mirza has invited special guest speakers Dr Suchitra Sebastian, Lecturer in Physics at the Maxwell Centre and Director of the Cavendish Arts-Science Project, University of Cambridge; and Jack Jelfs, artist, collaborator and physics graduate to explore exciting themes around the sun, science and art.
Tickets: £5, YSP Members £4
