First Impressions of Goa, India

Over the summer, while browsing through the list of events that celebrate the International Year of Light 2015, I stumbled upon the description of a festival called “The Story of Light,” which sought to explore the intersection of science, culture, and philosophy through art and design. I submitted an application and was invited to participate[…]
