Diseases of Modern Life: Victorian Light Night

  • Radcliffe Humanities Oxford OX2 6GG UK (map)

Come along for a spectacular light and sound installation, magnificently projected onto the front of the original Radcliffe Infirmary, now the Humanities building. This stunning free display is based on research from the ‘Diseases of Modern Life’ and uses the latest in technology of 3D mapping and projecting onto a building by the award winning artists from the Projection Studio team.

Follow the light trail throughout Oxford and finish in the Courtyard of the Radcliffe Humanities building to learn about the origins and endings of Victorian diseases, learn about Victorian ideas of ‘modern life’ and how the speed and development of technology affected everyday lives. In the Courtyard area, there will be Oxford researchers ready with games, bite-size talks, interactive activities, and a display from a local school group on what they think about ‘modern’ life and how the Victorians might have felt too.

Food and drinks stalls available and humanities fun all evening.
