About the event

Philip opens with a large bubble and explains how such a fragile object can exist, changing colour and form, and why bubbles go 'pop'. Following a story about the beginning of bubble play, he moves on to making a series of bubble sculptures, some with his bare hands, using a fog machine to show the internal structure more clearly. He also makes use of a light table and a wall of bubble film to show colour interference and even more tricks. Just like bubbles, no two shows are quite the same. One of his favourite quotes from Lord Kelvin is, "Blow a soap bubble and observe it. You may study it all your life and draw one lesson after another in physics from it."
