In this film, New York-based artist Matthew Ritchie and Daniel Bosia, leader of Arup’s Advanced Geometry Unit, discuss their new work: The Last Scattering, on display at Phase 2, Arup, 8 Fitzroy St, London, UK until mid-July 2009. It is part of an ongoing collaboration, which explores the relationship between space and matter. This installation refers to the birth of the universe and the cosmic background radiation (visible as static on your TV screen), which comes from a moment called ‘the last scattering’ - the collection of points in space and time when light separated from matter, less than 400,000 years after the Big Bang.
The exhibition will tour to New York in October.
