Light & Color

UV Room

When the curtains are closed in the UV ROOM, outside light is excluded except for that coming through a glass panel overhead. In the room are various plastic objects that have fluorescent colors. The glass above allows UV light to pass through, while blocking visible light, causing the objects to glow. The UV light seen here is always around when the sun is up, but normally is not noticed because the visible light is so bright that it drowns it out.
