Here you can see the light from a laser being bent as it follows the path of a stream of flowing water. This happens because the angle at which the light from the laser hits the surface of the water is beyond the ‘critical angle’ - instead of refracting the light, it’s reflected internally. This ‘total internal reflection’ is a property used in fibre optic cable to transmit signals of light over great distance, allowing light to bend around corners. To see how you can do this demonstration for yourself & for an answer to the question: what colour is a mirror? Check out this video: http://youtu.be/woN9KpAGv4I
Seems like everyone is obsessed with fantasy these days. Remakes and adaptations of ancient tales and comic books are as popular as ever. Turns out, even the ancient Southeast Asian were fascinated by fantastic composite creatures too.
This mythical bird-man from Central Thai (approx. 1775–1850) celebrates the fantasy and suggests the “dreamed-for ideal of universal sympathy” (Forrest McGill, curator).
Our beloved bird-man is currently on view in our Gorgeous exhibition which ends this Sunday 9/14. Why exactly is it on view? Well, dear reader, that’s for you to find out in the galleries.
