SHINE: code for everything

Tim Fitzpatrick, Artist, Scotland

SHINE, ’Code for Everything’ is an on-going art work by Tim Fitzpatrick in collaboration with astronomer Anne-Marie Weijmans of the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of St Andrews. The art takes its inspiration from the Anne-Marie’s work and the science of spectroscopy and, in particular, through a series of visual and experimental representations of the individual emission spectra of the elements.

Tim Fitzpatrick’s principal development of the work is through his fascination with the extraordinary level of detail – and therefore information – contained in the spectrum of starlight. As the work progresses and evolves he seeks to develop the theme of the linguistics of the light of the elements and, by extension, our reading of the light of the universe and our place in it, as described in a series of codes.
