Various objects from archival collections are comprised in one complex installation. Two photographic images of museum collections – from the artist’s growing archive of hidden institutional spaces – are printed on fabric and hung to surround an open lightbox borrowed from the Gothenburg Konsthall’s depot. Between the two hanging images are frames with bulging glass showing NASA slide film materials from the Hasselblad Foundation placed on the lightbox in the National Archive. The slide films document the astronauts’ first views of Earth seen from space. The release of these photo gave mankind a broader understanding of the world.
