Free tomorrow night (14 June)? Want to see UCL's portico bathed in coloured light while enjoying a free bar and BBQ? Then head along between 8pm and 10pm for what the organisers describe as a 'psychedelic thermal performance visualisation'.
The spectacular comes from UCL’s Environments, Imaging and Visualisation Centre (VEIV), and will include a chromatic representation of wind patterns sweeping through the quad. It's part of the unit's celebrations of 10 years of doctoral research into virtual environments, work that is also captured in a book that will launch on the evening.
Besides the main lightshow, visitors can also try a number of interactive exhibits. The Heard Word installation in the Chadwick Building will print your words as you speak them. Another piece will monitor how your heart rate varies with different stimuli, and chuck out visualisations accordingly.
The exhibition and catering opens at 8pm (they're not sure how long that free bar will last, so get there early if you want refreshments), with the main light show at 10pm. Entrance is free, but you must sign up to enter.
