Pioneer Plaques 13-23
anodised aluminium plaques
11 a 23x15 cm
The series «Pioneer Plaques 13-23» by Anina Müller deals with the fundamental difficulty of a successful communication between different species and the prevailing hope for a universally comprehensive and functional language. Inspired by the controversial plaques of the Pioneer 10 and 11 spacecrafts, this work can be read as a critique of the hubris of humans, who ultimately aren’t searching for a distant, other intelligence, but rather a mirror image of their own kind.
