"Milky Way" by Jan Pieter Fokkens

About

Chicago-based artist Jan Pieter Fokkens uses his work as a means of processing the incomprehensible. Navigating the relationship between algorithmic abstraction and the tangible qualities of pattern and color, Fokkens meditates on how reality is mediated by digital image. Entitled "Milky Way," this colorful drawing offers a representation of the dense center of the Milky Way galaxy, located 26,000 light years away from Earth. Using optical data from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, Fokkens extracts the average color of each coordinate, and uses archival markers to represent it as a single line upon the photo paper. The result is a reductionist account of an unimaginable sight. Framed. Pigment ink on photo paper.
