Abstract

Tania Kovats completed a year long Residency at North West Cambridge Development where she worked with Professor Gerry Gilmore at the Institute of Astronomy. She has been profoundly inspired by the Institute's role in the remarkable space observatory Gaia, which will map the Milky Way in unprecedented detail, and she has produced a spectacular sculpture in response to this entitled One Billion Objects in Space. In this talk Professor Gilmore and Tania Kovats looked back over the residency year and discussed the history of mapping the stars as well as the cultural implications of Gaia.
