Space Jelly

If you’re in town at all, do check out these amazing Aerogel sculptures by Liliane Lijn at the Riflemaker gallery on Beak Street. The ‘space jelly’ contains interstellar dust collected by Nasa as part of their Stardust Project, and moulded by Lijn and Nasa during her residency there in 2005. The sculptures are housed upstairs in the dusty, wooden and creaky-floored Riflemakers – well worth a visit just to see the 17th century building itself – until the end of May.
