Polvo de Otro Planeta

Mon Cano

As its starting point Polvo de Otro Planeta [Dust from Another Planet] takes the images of a fall of a meteorite, the asteroid that flew over the Russian region of Chelyabinsk in 2013. In a journey from the stratosphere, we attend to the meteorite's testimonies that will allow us to discover the frustrated search towards its corporeal reality. Passing through strata of infrastructure and ergonomics, the material implications of the proliferation of the digital image emerge.

Our culture of data, memes and videos is deeply rooted in the geological strata of the planet. Mineral resources are constantly relocated in the devices that constitute our means of representation. The energy and extensive crystallization times of the Earth's deep layers are linked to every image we consume on the internet. However, this extensive multi-scale network of devices is virtually invisible to humans. We interact with a seemingly harmless, disembodied surface layer.
