Our Disappearing Darkness and Recreating Prehistoric Night with MJ Sharp
October 2 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm$10.00 – $50.00
Join us for a virtual slideshow and discussion with MJ Sharp as she presents her photographic works-in-progress and discusses her attempts to recreate the experience of night at bronze-age megaliths. This work is part of her Fulbright Scholar Award work to investigate what we lose when we lose natural night and darkness to the ubiquity of contemporary light pollution.

She was in residence at the University of Exeter’s Environment and Sustainability Institute (ESI) in Cornwall for the 2021–2022 academic year. Learn more about MJ and her work here: www.mjsharp.com.
