Favourite space-inspired artist Katie Paterson works on a real meteorite

Posted by Liv Siddall,

We at It’s Nice That talk about artist Katie Paterson a lot. Be it at the lunch table chattering excitedly about how she once sent Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata to the actual moon or checking her website for new and exciting updates, we are big fans of her work. So now Katie’s got her hands on a real, massive meteorite we’ve been waiting with bated breath for some news on what magic she’s going to work with it. Now with this beautifully shot video, we can see the progress she’s making into melting it down, re-casting it and making plans to send it back into space. Katie, you are brilliant, and we love you.
