Each of the collected artifacts is then presented in equal measure in the form of an archive, asking the viewer to consider the relationship between the different images and to encourage new readings on familiar objects. Playing on the ambiguity of the reality of the imagery, the work causes a disruption in our presumptions about what we see and a reconsideration of our everyday, effectively trying to create circumstances where the familiar appears unfamiliar.
Using these ideas, the work challenges our preconceptions of our surroundings and question the parallels between our own world and our imaginations.
One of these images is in fact a meteorite. Part of the work is the text sections, which reveal the source of the imagery and encourage participation in locating the actual meteorite in the work.
