Abstract: This paper presents the process, approach and results for Visualising Electromagnetic Fields. A project that produced a toolkit and visual vocabulary for technological exploration through light-painting and long-exposure photography to capture, visualise and communicate invisible electromagnetic fields that surround everyday objects. The project acts as a case-study to answer a need for work that combines scientific and artistic practices. To create a open dialogue between the public, scientists, designers, and engineers in a way that provides a visual language for understanding and critical discussion.
