Trailer: Disappearing in the Dark

A documentary premiering in 2019 that was filmed in Paris and Washington D.C. and explores an art installation that opened on the first International Day of Light

In 2019, Inside Science will premiere a short documentary called Disappearing in the Dark, which was filmed in France and the United States and covers an immersive art installation that opened on the first International Day of Light, a global celebration of light and light technologies sponsored by the United Nations

This exhibit, titled “Naked Eyes,” was conceived and constructed by the Paris-based artists NONOTAK and installed at the Washington D.C. gallery ARTECHOUSE. The film opens in France a month before the installation and covers its build all the way through the exhibit premiere on May 16, 2018. Read APS Physics’ review of the exhibit: Art Meets Science and Light Turns Liquid at ARTECHOUSE’s “Naked Eyes.”

The installation, which ran through June 30, 2018, was supported through a partnership between The Optical Society (OSA), the American Physical Society (APS) and the American Institute of Physics (AIP) through its Venture Partnership Fund. AIP, OSA and APS are all members of the International Day of Light Steering Committee.
