For the past two years, Astrid Krogh has turned her artistic eye to the galaxies, seeking to convey the patterns created by light-emitting objects in the universe. She has even consulted with Dr. Margaret Geller of the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory at Harvard, a pioneer in the mapping of the universe. Geller’s work provides a new way of seeing the vast patterns in the distribution of galaxies, such as the Milky Way. In their email correspondence, Krogh found a fruitful and contagious connection between science and art, and her dialogue with Dr. Geller enabled a new practice and understanding of the world.

“Arne Jacobsen once said that light gives all things their presence, highlighting the important role it plays in bringing surfaces to life” – Bradley Quinn

Astrid Krogh, a classically trained designer has taken Jacobson’s observation further by integrating light into her work rather than using it for effect.

"I use light both as a material and a technology, the presence of light is an essential component of my work as light enables my textiles to pulsate, change patterns and create an entire spectrum of ever changing colour ways"

“My reference point is often Gobelin tapestries or ancient kelim carpets, from a distance their colour ways appear to be distinct, but a closer examination reveals how the boundaries between them contain entire spectrums of colour”
