The Universe Makers
The project “The Universe Makers” is the result of a two-year research on space imagery. It is an enquiry into the patterns and models of representation on which our pop-culture psyche is based, and which profoundly influence our attitudes toward science and outer space. Through this body of work, Bianca Salvo wanted to explore the character photography, technology, science fiction and other media have played in producing evidence that continue to address our collective imagery towards beliefs, fake conceptions and constructed scenarios.
The project is conceived as a multi-layered installation including texts, sculptured objects, archival images, still photographs and a photo-book. It aims to explore abstract notions of the collective unconscious in relation to our perception of outward space.
