Katie Paterson

Worlds in Collision: Adelaide International 2014


Katie Paterson’s work constantly references intangible, natural phenomena, combining sophisticated and totally mundane technologies to allow people to engage with the natural environment. Katie Paterson has exhibited internationally, from London to New York, Berlin to Seoul, and her works have been included in major shows including the Hayward Gallery, Tate Britain, Kunsthalle Wien and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney.

Co-produced by the Adelaide Festival, Katie Paterson’s Second Moon project will track the cyclical journey of a small fragment of the moon as it circles the Earth on a man-made commercial orbit. You can follow Second Moon’s journey by downloading the free mobile app from the itunes app store.
