Cliff Burtt – Larger Map of the Universe


Category: Tags: ,


A sculptor and fabricator of the true sense, Cliff Burtt continues his exploration of astrophysics and celestial instruments with great dedication and playfulness. The paradigm which has shaped the modern world, that of natural philosophy – science- and its concomitant engineering technologies, begins with the investigation and measurement of phenomena. The works presented here are especially concerned with the modelling of physical systems and optical equipment. A number of these pieces effectively reverse- engineer the aesthetics of the instruments used, to draw out the poetics of the means employed by our forebears, an alchemy of physics and wonderment.
