Katie Paterson creates poetic works of art that address our physical landscape in unimagined and inspiring ways. Offering fresh insight into the imaginative potential of present-day technologies, Paterson gives new meaning to the conceptual tradition of art as idea.

Paterson generated excitement around the world with her work Vatnajökull (the sound of), presented as part of her 2007 Slade School Degree Show, inviting visitors to call a number that connected them to Vatnajökull glacier in Iceland from where they could hear the sounds of ice melting. Paterson re-presents Vatnajökull (the sound of) for nine weeks as part of her exhibition in Modern Art Oxford”™s Lower Gallery, together with the haunting Earth-Moon-Earth (Moonlight Sonata Reflected from the Surface of the Moon).
