The Euclid Mission will map 3/4 of the galaxies in the universe searching for distortions indicating the structure of dark matter.
Using sculpture, installation and imagery, the residency will respond to emerging ideas around form and structure in space as seen through concepts of gravity and dark matter and time. Working closely with the Euclid Mission team at Mullard Space Science Laboratory, research will explore how technology is transforming our perception of the imagined universe.
MSSL are producing the VIS (visible light spectrum) instrument for the Euclid Mission, a European Space Agency initiative to understand the dark universe. Supported by Arts Council England, the year-long residency will include creative workshops for lab staff, presentation/stargazing events, a short film and an exhibition and seminar in September 2019.
