From the Distant Past
Abstract

Abstract:

In collaboration with the Space Telescope Science Institute, the German artist Tim Otto Roth presented astronomical spectra as a core component of art exhibits in Venice, Baltimore, and New York City. "From the Distant Past" is not only a light based art and science project in public space about the origins of the universe, it is also an artistic reflection on the phenomenon of color by the means of concept art using laser light as a minimalist tool of graphical notation.
