Taking inspiration from the study of the universe, blood flowing through the human heart and the order and disorder of atoms and molecules, Cosmoscope explored the patterns, structures and similarities of these scientific areas.
Cosmoscope asked us to consider the very, very small scale and imagine the very, very large scale, to contemplate our own place in the universe and encouraged us to question how we perceive the world around us. This vast project was developed by a team of scientists and artists and led by Simeon Nelson, Professor of Sculpture at the University of Hertfordshire.
If you would like to learn more from the team behind Cosmoscope and the research that contributed towards the sculpture, further information can be seen on Simeon’s website.
