Panspermia, 2013 – 2014, in progress

 

A team of scientists from The University of Sheffield claimed to have discovered extra-terrestrial alien organisms and released photographs of these organisms along with a report in 2013. This discovery was met with suspicion by many scientists and its veracity; the question whether the organisms are certainly extra-terrestrial or not, is yet unconfirmed. But those recently surfaced images of organisms already took their place in the digital memory, as visual materials of a narrative that inflames the collective appetite for the alien.  In these collages, familiar and terrestrial images merges with the Sheffield organisms; the potential aliens which possess a type of alienness which seemingly wouldn’t be greatly diminished even if these organisms turned out to be terrestrial. These works intend to present the viewer a construction of fictitious reality, where the alien becomes familiar and the familiar becomes alien.
