PCA Alumni Kaamna Patel and Kristina Chan present their newest artistic collaboration “Asterism“, a collection of limited edition, pigment prints on Japanese Washi paper. The pieces are based on imagery sourced from the Hubble telescope, which were then recomposed and reproduced by hand as screen prints by the artists. These final modern constellation maps have been produced as pigment prints on this traditional hand-made paper.
The interplay between the ancient and the modern, the traditional and the contemporary, both in concept and medium mimics the artist’s re-imaginings of contemporary culture’s constellations. These new constellations reflect our society today in all its brevity, satire, beauty, and collapse.
