Celebrating innovation

Now in its second year LIGHTWAVE gives an unique chance to experiment with illumination in the company of a bright and buzzing community of scientists, engineers, philosophers and techno-artists who are passionate about the visible spectrum. From January 23-31st the LIGHTWAVE festival will thrill and delight Dublin city, and the LIGHTWAVE exhibition will continue until February 20th.

In keeping with the philosophy of Science Gallery, LIGHTWAVE is generated through an open call for ideas. From ten thousand peacock feathers in foaming acid to electric fish and a new kind of fuel cell to provide off-grid light in Africa, we have a full range of delights in store for you at the LIGHTWAVE festival, exhibition, talks and workshops.

Bigger, better, brighter

After a year of effort we are now happy to introduce an installation featuring newly developed sensors with higher sensitivity, brighter light and fine-tuned responsiveness.
