Thomas Ruff - MA.R.S. (2012)

"A combination of the visual data obtained during explorations of Mars and the technological sophistication achieved in images on interplanetary space. As with all of these series on cosmic space, Ruff initially had to sift through a vast body of material that required a certain level of expertise to be able to select and thus interpret what is being seen through the images obtained.

The series MA.R.S. offers a low-level aerial survey of the surface of Mars, using color filters that create a tenuous glow and thus convert the planet’s arid surface into that ‘promise of happiness’ which should be associated with everything related to beauty, according to Stendhal.”
