The Universe Makers

The project The Universe Makers is the result of a research on space imagery and it aims to inquire on representative patterns and figurative models upon which our pop culture psyche bases and which still nowadays profoundly influence our attitudes toward the scientific and the outer space. The body of work explores the role technology, medias and science fiction have had in producing evidences that still address our collective imagery towards believes, fake conceptions and constructed scenarios. Conceived as an installation the series combines text, sculptured objects and archival images, focusing on offering a reflexion on the ambiguity of the photographic document and discussing its potential of creating objective evidences.
