2015 is the UNESCO International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies, ‘to promote sustainable development and provide solutions to global challenges in energy, education, agriculture and health.’

Students, graduates and staff of the Dunedin School of Art, as well as other artists associated with the Dunedin School of Art, have worked with scientists, University of Otago staff including postdoctoral research staff and PhD students, from the Departments of Physics, Botany, Anatomy, Physiology, and Computer Science, and related sectors of the Dunedin community, on a joint Art and Light Project from November 2014-August 2015.

Artists and scientists have worked together, individually or in small groups, to develop visual material that relate to research topics, often tangentially and always unexpectedly. The artists have created responses to the ideas, not illustrations of the research.

The Project has been administered by Dr Ruth Napper, Dept. of Anatomy, University of Otago, and Peter Stupples, Dunedin School of Art, who also co-ordinated the very successful Art and Neuroscience and Art and Anatomy Projects that ran in 2013-14, with the support of Professor David Hutchinson, Director of the Dodds-Walls Centre for Photonic and Quantum Technologies, University of Otago.
