First look: Arup's new gallery welcomes Last Scattering

The AJ can reveal the first pictures of a new artwork designed by artist Matthew Ritchie and Daniel Bosia of Arup’s Advanced Geometry Unit

The Last Scattering is currently being housed in Arup’s recently opened Phase 2 exhibition space at the company’s Fitzroy Street offices, central London.

Accoridng to the artist, the work is a ‘seemingly random formation of black structural elements that tests the premise of parametric design’ and is formed ‘according to the inherent possibilities and limits of the materials’.

The inspiration for the piece was taken from the Big Bang theory and cosmic background radiation ‘visible as the static on your TV screen’. The ‘last scattering’ moment when light separated from matter, less than 400,000 years after the Big Bang.

The Phase 2 gallery is at 8 Fitzroy Street and is open to the public, free of charge, on Monday to Friday between 9am to 6pm. The exhibition runs until 26 June 2009.
