Abstract

'Contracting Universe' is a large-scale print applied to the gallery wall, which features NASA’s recent digital rendering of the surface of Mars. Closely resembling a Modernist photograph of a sublime mountainscape, when viewed at close range the image appears more and more like a digital approximation, suggesting a poetic futility inherent in the human desire to comprehend or manage the infinite.
