Tim Fitzpatrick Artist Talk – Making Connections


Tim Fitzpatrick is an installation artist based in North East Fife and a founder member of the Fife based arts project The Red Field. In 2017 he was awarded a Development Programme bursary as part of the VACMA Fife scheme. He has used this funding to develop work that combines art and science – with some amazing results!

On Friday 9 February 2018, 2-3pm, as part of the events connected to Kate Scardifield’s exhibition ‘Ley Lines’ in St Andrews Museum, Tim will give an artist talk about his collaboration with astronomer Anne-Marie Weijmans for ‘Shine: code for everything’ – now in its third year. He will talk about the subsequent connections to a wider community of scientists and how that has led to new directions in his work and his appointment as artist in residence for the Sloan Digital Sky Survey based at the Apache Point Telescope in New Mexico, USA.
