Site-specific installation bringing together the worlds of physics as part of Ely Cathedral Science Festival


Taking Newton's Principia and Darwin's Origin of Species as a point of inspiration, Alexandra Carr brings together the worlds of physics and biology through sculpture, drawings and video, while responding to the awe-inspiring architecture of Ely Cathedral.

Motion, structure, form and scale are at the heart of a site-specific installation hung from the cathedral's dome.  With Bodies of Movement, Alexandra aims to reconcile the very large and the very small, from single celled organisms to the motions of planetary bodies.  This exhibition highlights questions about an underlying code that connects all of us to each other and the cosmos.

Bodies of Movements forms a core part of the Ely Cathedral Science Festival.
