Abstract

The authors present Little Earth, the result of collaboration between artist Jo Joelson and the Radio and Space Plasma Physics Group at the University of Leicester. The project draws on the historical research of Kristian Birkeland and C. T. R. Wilson to examine how developments in technology have affected the relationships between artists and scientists in observing and representing the natural world. The principal output of the project was a multi-channel video work representing a fictional dialogue between Birkeland and Wilson, projected onto the faces of a sculptural form inspired by contemporary spacecraft design.
