“Celestial works” by Alex Cecchetti, Peter Coffin, Cerith Wyn Evans, Spencer Finch, Olia Lialina, Matt Mullican, Lisa Oppenheim, Trevor Paglen, Katie Paterson, Walid Raad/The Atlas Group, Semiconductor, and Joe Winter

This publication presents unusual projects in photography, video, painting, and installation, each one with the sky as its theme. The goal of this presentation is to map, measure, and chart the firmament. Using stars, sunsets, and even satellites, artists attempt to understand the skies, well knowing that it can never really be encompassed. These works of art reflect our desire to fathom the vaults of the heavens, their physical conditions, and their unique visual fascination. Out of the fundamental futility of this human effort the artists derive a sense of the mystical and sublime, while the art itself manifests the romantic aspects of a seemingly completely rational world.
