Limits of Light
Grenzen des Lichts
We recognize our world primarily through the sense of vision, yet the light we use to see by is only a tiny fraction of the electro- magnetic spectrum that surrounds us and impacts on our lives. From X-rays to microwaves, from ultraviolet to infrared, we explore the world of colour. We find out what colour really is, how our colour vision works, and we explore insects that can see into the ultraviolet, snakes that sense invisible infrared radiation and birds whose colour vision is far more sensitive than ours. Following the multiple award-winning «Limits of Perception» and «Time Limits», this is the third part of the trilogy that explores beyond the limits of our everyday perceptions.
