‘Vox Stellarum’ or ‘Voice of the Stars’ is textile artist Elin Noble’s response to an early eighteenth century copperplate engraving from the 1731 book titled Physica sacra by the Swiss natural scientist Johann Jakob Scheuchzer. Using hand dyeing and clamp resist techniques, Noble creates an environment in which the interplay of light, shadow, transparency and cloth allude to the mystical and magical dimensions of a natural world that science has yet to fully explain.
