Selenography (entoptic study)


Cast glass
8 x 8 cm (40 x 40 cm with frame)

Two reliefs of the moon's surface, based on 3D prints collected from NASA's material bank. The work takes its starting point in an early theory about the darker parts of the moon, in which they were said to be found between the lunar body and the observer, floating in the so-called aether. The two glass casts depict the same surface with slight shifts.
