For this workshop,  I brought in UV reactive paint and markers, and surprised students by turning off the lights and shining a UV torch on the palates.


I explained to students how I worked last year alongside Aowen Jin for her show The Ritual, commissioned by Museums at Night for the Compton Verney Art Park and Gallery, to create a massive phosphorescent rice field installation, which visitors explored with UV torches.
