Kahn and Selesnick’s exhibition Mars: Adrift on the Hourglass Sea will open tomorrow at the Yancey Richardson Gallery in New York City and run until February 19th. The exhibition features new photographs and sculptures representing a collapsed civilization on Mars. Two female protagonists and one child are featured roaming through the dark landscape littered with stone-age monuments and high-tech devices. Issues of environmental disaster, societal and economic collapse, technology, and existential philosophy are explored in a journey through the red planet. Kahn and Selesnick integrated actual photo-mosaics of Martian landscapes taken by NASA space rovers as well images shot in the deserts of Utah to create the ruined civilization.
