Animation, 2021

A slow animation of one hundred photomosaics. Each photomosaic is made using the archive of raw images from the Cassini space-research mission to Saturn. Each photomosaic contains 3995 tiles or cells and overall, the animation contains all of the Cassini raw image archive, a collection of nearly 400,000 images. The Cassini raw images act as library images to construct a new target image, the target in each of the photomosaics is the famous painting by Francisco de Goya, Saturn (circa 1820-23). The works seeks to collide two seemingly diametrically opposed representations of Saturn. This work was first exhibited at Espacio Alexandra (Santander, Spain) in March 2021.
