A VISUAL JOURNEY THROUGH A TRUE DEEP SPACE ODYSSEY. 67-P IS AN ABSTRACT AND SUBJECTIVE VISION ON EUROPEAN SPACE AGENCY´S PHOTOGRAPHIC ARCHIVE OF THE WORLD FAMOUS ROSETTA MISSION.

In 2017 artist duo Claudio Pogo and Magdalena Wysocka discovered the ESA image archive and created the artist book 67-P. The artists mission was the transformation of photography from science to art. The archive contained around 200.000 black and white photographs taken by 3 different remote controlled devices. Images were shot "blind" since transmitting and decrypting takes around 1 hour for the ESA technicians. The book visualizes the 10 year journey in space using the mission´s photographs in different abstract ways. Finally the book was printed with a Risograph on a paper made entirely out of chalkstone. The combination of these two techniques is also a first in history, and besides from saving planet earth, it gives the book an extraordinary haptic experience of holding an object that seems to have it´s own gravity.
