SHINE: Code for Everything III is an ongoing collaboration between artist Tim Fitzpatrick and astronomer Anne-Marie Weijmans of the University's School of Physics and Astronomy. Their work explores the unique patterns of light emitted from stars, known as emission and absorption spectra, or 'coded light' for all of the elements of our Universe. This art installation has been created especially for MUSA and responds to the remarkable scientific instruments and discoveries featured in the 'Seeing and Believing' gallery.
