Collaborating with leading scientists and researchers across the world, award winning artist Katie Paterson’s poetic and conceptual projects consider our place on Earth in the context of geological time and change. Her artworks make use of technologies and specialist expertise to stage intimate, poetic and philosophical engagements between people and their environment. Combining a Romantic sensibility with a research-based approach and minimalist presentation, her work collapses the distance between the viewer and the most distant edges of time and the cosmos. The publication is the first comprehensive overview of this exciting young artist’s work. This book combines lavish illustrations of the artist’s first ten years of practice with critical texts to reveal an incredible artistic output.
