Astronomy

 

Angela Palmer recreated an area of space using Nasa data for the Kepler mission for her sculpture, Searching for Goldilocks, now in the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum in Washington, USA. The sculpture featured in her solo exhibition Life Lines (see above for catalogue link). The installation is a collaboration with Dr Chris Lintott, astrophysicist and Dr Alexy Karenowska, physicist, both from Oxford University. The artist hand engraved the details captured by the telescope on 18 sheets of glass, each representing 250 light years from Earth.
