Katie Paterson

Some people just have fascinating minds... Paterson has created lightbulbs that emulate moonlight, and records of frozen ice that play back the sounds of the glaciers they came from, amongst other projects even larger and more complicated. Obviously not someone who builds their entire project the week before a deadline.

"Since graduating from the Slade School of Fine Art last year, Katie Paterson has had solo shows at the Matthew Bown Gallery, R O O M, and Modern Art Oxford, and spent a month ‘moongazing’ in Japan.

Her recent works include Earth-Moon-Earth, the transmission of Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata to the moon and back - resulting in fragmented composition being transmitted on a self-playing grand piano and Vatnajökull (the sound of) - a live phone line to an Icelandic glacier. Both works were first presented at Paterson’s MFA degree show in 2007 and restaged at her acclaimed solo show at Modern Art Oxford this year.

Currently exhibiting at Albion, London; forthcoming shows include Tsekh Gallery, Kiev, and Altermodern: Tate Triennial 2009."
