Lost Koan (2007) at Jubilee Park, Canary Wharf

21 Oct – 13 Nov 2015

Lost Koan (2007) is currently sited at Jubilee Park in Canary Wharf (Monday to Sunday, daylight hours) as part of The Multiple Store @ Canary Wharf  exhibition, also at the Lobby of One Canada Square.

The title Lost Koan refers to an interview Liliane Lijn had in 2005 during her NASA residency at the Space Sciences Laboratory, University of California, Berkeley. Lijn interviewed astrophysicist and renowned expert on the Aurora Borealis, Dr. Stephen B. Mende.

Lijn was fascinated by the visual thoughts arrayed upon his whiteboard and asked him to explain their meaning. His explanation was fascinating, and surprisingly connected to her own work, when he referred to the space above the poles where the solar wind meets with the earth’s magnetic field as ‘the lost cone’.
