Aether is an exhibition themed on the subject of Earth as a fragile organism, and communicates how precious the phenomena of life is, in the entirety of time and space.
It brings together University of the Arts London alumni and staff who are exploring themes of space and cosmology within their work. The exhibition is inspired by The Overview Effect documentary by The Planetary Collective where astronauts report a shift in their perception after seeing the Earth surrounded by an expanse of black nothingness.
