Dying Star (Doorbell), 2009
Katie Paterson has the ability to turn cosmological data into poetic, accessible and attractive arrangements. She implements quantitive data collected from telescopes through day-to-day means: in letters, loudspeakers, confetti canons and turntables. She cleverly reduces unfathomable information into simple points, somehow subtly clarifying the insignificance of the human race.
Katie Paterson’s show ‘100 Billion Stars’ is showing at Haunch of Venison, Eastcastle St until 28th April.
