UNIVS | CELEBRATING INTERNATIONAL DAY OF HUMAN SPACE FLIGHT
As well as searching for pattern in the mundane to the magnificent, PATTERNITY celebrate natural symmetry on earth and in the universe. Looking for serendipity of form from the macro to the micro, and noticing where shapes and patterns repeat, causes us to ask questions about the fundamental structures and make-up of the world around us…
CELEBRATING INTERNATIONAL DAY OF HUMAN SPACE FLIGHT
The 12th April 1961 marked the first time that a human entered space: Yuri Gagarin was a Russian cosmonaut whose Vostok Spacecraft orbited the Earth.
Here PATTERNITY pairs magnificent images showing human Space endeavours and the progress made since that first venture into the unknown, with things much more rooted to terra firma; reminding us of the vastness of space, and the interconnected nature of the whole Universe.

“I am confident that the International Day of Human Space Flight will remind us of our common humanity and our need to work together to conquer shared challenges. I hope it will also inspire young people in particular to pursue their dreams and move the world towards new frontiers of knowledge and understanding.”
