While questions of intellectual property and the era of financial crisis melt with strategies of survival, a recent and ongoing research is based on one photographic series, shot by the Mars robot "Spirit", whose panoramic and fragmented images show empty and stony landscapes, sometimes in true color, sometimes in false colour and sometimes in 3-D in low- and high resolution (bridging an up to 320 Million km distance of data transmission). The records distributed by the NASA question intellectual property, identity, science and narrativity in current global crisis of climate and finance. They open a new challenge of perception and abstraction, referencing Robert Smithson`s research of (mythical) landscape, fiction and industrial / archival spaces of the 60's. The project researches long distance data transmission of images. One Edition of 20 images of this research is printed as digital high resolution print 63 x 112 cm, including BOOK, 52, pages, 54 photos, hardcover by Klaus Hu 2012, limited edition.
