Katie Paterson | Studio

artists, Katie Paterson

The concepts behind Katie Paterson’s practice take her all around the globe,¬†transforming her studio from Berlin to nomadic at times.

For her work Future Library, she made her way up north to Oslo where a forest has been planted ready to supply the paper for 100 new texts to be printed in 100 years time, in 2114.

A secretive artwork with an uncertain future audience who will receive what could be a beautiful gift from the past.

A mirrorball of over 10,000 solar eclipses rotates to create a sparkling progression of the eclipse across a room.

The images make up nearly every solar eclipse documented by humankind, from total through to quarter and half eclipses.


A beautiful spectacle of the sun eclipsing the moon.
