Aerosphere and Atmosphere

Aerosphere and Atmosphere, a dual projection based on satellite images is focused on
contemporary mapping of Mars and Earth as well as pre-Copernican artist's representations
of the two planetary spheres. We intend to employ both "subjective" historical drawings by
early astronomers or artists of the planets Earth and Mars and "objective" images images
obtained by remote sensing or telescopic technology within the installation. The dual projection suggests format the twin births of science and science fiction. The double projection is our reconfiguration of a "Mercator's projection": an alternative spatial schema that shifts between fictional and factual terrain.
