Mars: Adrift on the Hourglass Sea By Kahn & Selesnick
Richard Selesnick and Nicholas Kahn have been collaborating since 1988 in creating “fantastical photo-novellas and sculptural installations” of alien-scenic views.
“On an altered yet recognizable version of our neighbouring planet, we find a world populated solely with two women. We do not learn their names nor how and when they came to Mars, but we observe their wanderings in a desolate landscape which they attempt make navigable and habitable with an amalgam of high-tech components retrofitted to found artifacts and monuments that appear to be the remnants of a long-gone civilization. The remains of massive stone listening devices are littered about the landscape, leading us to wonder: is this a colony that has collapsed and lost touch with earth? How did its occupants become stranded? Or are these the nocturnal imaginings of two post-apocalyptic survivors?” via Dixie Rose
