14 September 2013 – 3 November 2013

In 2011 and 2012 Sophy Rickett made regular visits to the Institute of Astronomy at Cambridge University as an Associate Artist. Her new photographs are a response to meeting a retired fellow of the Institute, the scientist Dr Roderick Willstrop. Rickett has produced a remarkable series of large-scale photographs inspired by the negatives produced from the Three Mirror Telescope designed and built by Dr Willstrop. Her new work explores the connections between optics and seeing, the shift from analogue to digital, relationships between different kinds of photographic practice and the encounter between an individual and an institution, between an artist and a scientist.

Also on display will be a selection of earlier works from To The River (Archive) 2011-12 inspired by the Severn Bore, a large surge wave that can be seen in the estuary of the River Severn.
