67P ©2017 overview | zoom | text
 
 
This work is an investigation on light, time and space on the one hand within the subject of photography itself and on the other hand on the example of the space mission of the orbiter „Rosetta“.
I have been collecting old deteriorating, fading or double-exposed (glass) negatives illustrating the subject of ephemerality and impermanence. I also included pictures of the inward parts of my body, demonstrating its fragility and origin from the universe.
Images from NASA and ESA depict the journey to the comet 67P, which has been the designation of the mission „Rosetta“ on the search for the primeval soup and the proof of life-molecules within the universe. The whole mission started 1992 and lasted till 2014, when the lander finally landed on 67P to gather information. This high-tech mission was developed to answer questions about life on earth.

Playing with these juxtapositions I created a visual journey approaching universal questions on life, transiency, time, what remains from our existence and which imprints we leave behind as human beings.

The pictures have been named after the twelve instruments installed on "Rosetta".
