‘New Light through an old Hole - From Mo-tzu to the Selfie Stick

Over 2500 years ago the Philosopher Mo-tzu observed sunlight travelling through a small hole and deduced that light travelled in the same way as an arrow being fired, in a straight line.
In just over an hour, ‘Aristotle’s Hole’ covers: the Science, 500 million year history and the immense variety of contemporary approaches to pinhole photography.
