Astonishing Katie Paterson

This astonishing young Scottish woman explores ideas in an exciting combination of art and science -- coding the "Moolight Sonata", firing it at the moon and discovering that it returns with a few notes missing; a phone number that will connect you to a microphone beneath an Icelandic glacier; a map of all the dead stars in the universe...and so on. Exciting and creatively inspiring!

  1. that is very cool stuff. What part of Scotland is she from? Does she have anything on display? I will be in Scotland next week, it would be fun to look into her while I'm there!
