THE PROJECT IN STATS
Taking Newton’s Principia and Darwin’s Origin of Species as a point of inspiration, artist, Alexandra Carr will bring together the worlds of physics and biology through kinetic work and drawings, while responding to the awe-inspiring architecture of Ely Cathedral.
Motion, structure, form and scale are at the heart of this work. Carr aims to reconcile the very large and the very small, from single celled organisms to the motions of planetary bodies.
Notions of growth, development, refinement, adaptation and movement will be central to the work both from a biological perspective and one of a more far reaching, philosophical standpoint.
This body of work will highlight how simple laws of nature give rise to complexity, raising questions about an underlying code that connects all of us to each other and the cosmos.
