Katie Paterson is part of the TEDWomen 2021 conference. Her film, The mind-bending art of deep time, forms part of the event, which includes TED Talks, interviews, performances and workshops.
Collaborating with scientists and researchers, Katie Paterson creates artwork that considers our place on Earth in the context of geological time and change. She has broadcast the sounds of a melting glacier, mapped all the dead stars, compiled a slide archive of darkness from the depths of the universe, created a light bulb to simulate the experience of moonlight and sent a recast meteorite back into space. Her works use sophisticated technologies and specialist expertise to stage intimate, poetic and philosophical engagements between people and their natural environment, collapsing the distance between the viewer and the most distant edges of time and the cosmos.
