Open. Uh. Open it. Uh. Uh.
by Kate Sansom
For Open. Uh. Open it. Uh. Uh.
Sansom created an installation based on the Arecibo Message, a logographic system that was beamed into space by late astrochemist and foremost proprietor of popular astronomy, Carl Sagan and his associates in 1974. Drawing, sculpture and video were used to convey Saganís utopian project of creating a universally understood language.
The site functioned as a realm of interception, observation and interpretation of one possible version of our hedonistic future.
