Bismillah. More from Katie Paterson. I’m delighted that a brief conversation about supernovae 1-2 years ago at ROG led to an astronomical art display at the Tate.
I went on to contact and then work with Supernova Hunters all over the world, like you suggested. Particularly Prof Richard Ellis, then at Oxford, now Caltech.
It resulted in a huge map of ‘All the Dead Stars’ in the Universe – that was shown at Tate Britain early this year:
A whole 27,000 of them! (Gamma ray bursts, white dwarves, supernova type 1a,b etc)
