The concept of invisibility has inspired us for centuries: from Plato and Shakespeare, to James Clerk Maxwell’s unseen ether and the magicians of the Victorian music hall. This territory takes us from medieval grimoires to cutting-edge nanotechnology, from fairytales to telecommunications, from camouflage to early cinematography, and from beliefs about ghosts to the dawn of nuclear physics and the discovery of dark energy. Join author Philip Ball to discover why the unseen has been so enticing – and to discover ways of making things disappear.

Philip Ball is a freelance writer, and worked previously for over 20 years as an editor for Nature. He writes regularly in the scientific and popular media, and has authored many books on the interactions of the sciences, the arts, and the wider culture, including H2O: A Biography of Water, Bright Earth: The Invention of Colour, The Music Instinct, and Curiosity: How Science Became Interested in Everything. His book Critical Mass won the 2005 Aventis Prize for Science Books. Philip trained as a chemist at the University of Oxford, and as a physicist at the University of Bristol. His latest book is The Water Kingdom: A Secret History of China (2016).

— LDN Talks is a new concept which aims to re-invent your after work drinks. We've pulled together an impressive array of leading entrepreneurs, intellectuals and bright thinkers to leave you feeling inspired.
