About Cosmologica, Part II


In Part II, the explorer resolves to take a closer look at the newly discovered planet, and touches down at what appears to be a purpose-built desert spaceport.  Once again, Earthly images are re-framed in cyanotype to remind us that our home is a planet in a vast and mysterious cosmos.


Upon landing, the explorer discovers hundreds of abandoned airships and artifacts. Clearly this planet once hosted a sky faring civilization, but where now are the individuals who built these ships? Were they wiped out in a mass extinction event? Did they leave the planet behind?  All of these questions are jumping-off points as the viewer peers at a vision of the future through a photographic medium from the 1800s.
