UN International Year of Light 2015 Light Works :: Shared Description

An open-air exhibition in St Andrew Square, part of the Edinburgh International Science Festival, organised by the Royal Photographic Society, demonstrating the usefulness of visible light and the rest of the electromagnetic spectrum, from gamma rays to radio waves, for a whole range of applications in science, technology and medicine in our lives. There are 50 panels in the northeast corner of the square, around the refreshment area [the more usual part of the square for these exhibitions is still recovering from the Christmas entertainment occupation. The panels are also different from the usual non-reflective ones the posters are covered with Perspex, and present a lot of reflections on a bright sunny day].

The exhibition runs from 3 March 17 April LinkExternal link . It has already been displayed in London and Belfast, with the promise of more venues to come, and all images can be seen here :- LinkExternal link
The Science Festival runs from 4-19 April LinkExternal link | #EdSciFest

These Shared Descriptions are common to multiple images. For example, you can create a generic description for an object shown in a photo, and reuse the description on all photos of the object. All descriptions are public and shared between contributors, i.e. you can reuse a description created by others, just as they can use yours.
