Light and Sight Gallery
Light is an integral part of our lives. In earlier times, it was perceived that light consists of rays that travel in straight lines from the eye to the object and the sensation of sight is obtained when these rays touch the object, much like the sense of touch. Through a century of research works done by several scientists, we now fairly understand what light is and how it behaves.
The ‘Light & Sight’ gallery showcases the properties and applications of light and mechanisms that facilitate our vision through interactive exhibits, working models and multimedia presentations. The gallery also provides insight into various illusions that we experience through our visual sense.
This hall makes us to understand that how do we see, why we need two eyes, defects of eyes, self-controlling Irish etc. A series of optical illusion exhibits, justifying that seeing is not always believing, are some of the exciting features. The other wonders are the Bending of Light in Pipes, Basic Principles of Light, captive Shadow, addition of colours, is light visible, anamorphoses, optic fibre lighting, A Mixing of your half size with someone else half etc.
