The artist Katie Patterson has designed and delivered some marvellous work. Patterson was born in Glasgow and is now based in Berlin.
We like a lot of her work such as ‘All the Dead Stars’ which is a map of all the dead stars in the universe, ‘Future Library’ which is a newly planted forest in Norway whose wood will be used in 100 years time to print an anthology of books by invited artists the first of which is written by Margaret Attwood and finally we love ‘Hollow’. A newly completed sculptural works and microcosmos of all of the world’s trees that sits in the Royal Fort Gardens in Bristol. It is a collaborative works with Architects Zeller & Moye based in Mexico City and Berlin. We really like this firm but more about them in another blog.
Somewhere, inside ‘The Hollow’, are trees from the Philippines such as Nara or Gmelina. In all 10,000 species went into this magnificent works, a symbol of diversity and collaboration across the planet. We salute all of those involved.
