For a little light relief I thought you might enjoy these facts about Art while I'm preparing more information on light.
Art was once an Olympic Event. No it didn’t involve seeing how far a person could throw a paint brush or a painting!! I must confess I have probably done both of these! The founder of the Modern Olympic Movement Pierre de Fredy (Baron de Coubertin) gave medals for works inspired by sport in the categories of architecture, literature, music, painting and sculpture for the years 1912-1948. The practice was abandoned in 1954 because artists were considered to be professionals and athletes competing at the Olympics had to be, at this time, amateurs!
Willard Wigan, MBE (born June 1957) is an English sculptor from Ashmore Park Estate, Wednesfield, England, who makes microscopic art. His sculptures are typically placed in the eye of a needle or on the head of a pin. A single sculpture can be as small as 0.005 mm (0.0002 in). (Wikipedia)
