A playground of Ideas: KB101

Reading time: < 1 minute
In our December issue, Bulletin celebrated the launch of a series of artworks commissioned to mark the King’s Building (KB) campus centenary (KB101). This video shares more about the project and the thinking behind it.

Glasgow-born Katie Paterson, artist and ECA alumna, was chosen to create the artwork. Her work, Ideas, takes the form of one hundred three-line texts cut in stainless steel. Situated in a variety of locations in and around the KB campus, some of the Ideas will be immediately visible and others will be hidden in unexpected places inside and out, at varying levels, high and low. Each Idea is inspired by scientific thought and research, and the subject matter is wide ranging, from the first colours on earth to the universe’s last stars; involving fields such as chemistry, biology, astronomy, geology and geography.
