Following the University Commissioning Guidelines process in 2019 the artist Katie Paterson was chosen to produce a new artwork for KB. Katie is a graduate of ECA and has been an honorary fellow of the University since 2013. The work she proposed takes the form of a series of Ideas - short haiku like three-lined sentences cut in metal.
