Our usual Friday Mooney Goes Wild with Shay presenting and Richard Collins & Eanna Ni Lamhna in studio. Dr Stephen Newton (LIS), head of Seabird Conservation with Birdwatch Ireland joins Shay live in studio to speak about a Little Tern Colony in Ireland.
Do you believe your eyes? Can you trust your senses? And is anything really as it seems? These are just some of the questions posed by ILLUSION: NOTHING IS AS IT SEEMS, the mind-bending new exhibition by Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin, which opens to the public this Friday.
What: ILLUSION is a perception-shattering insight into the human mind, playfully combining the techniques used by magicians and explored by psychologists. Open six days per week throughout the summer, admission to ILLUSION is free.
Where: Science Gallery, Trinity College Dublin, Pearse Street.
When: July 12, 2013 - September 29, 2013
