Photogravure
This collection of works contains images found in some older books a book from 1964 about the earth and the space which I found in my mother’s house after she passed away last summer. One book ‘man probes universe’ from 1964 by Colin A. Ronan. The other ‘Our wondrous world’ from 1952 by various scientists and institutes.

I was attracted to the beautiful images of the Milky Way, the luminous masses of air, the meteorites and the fascinating infinite universe. At the same time, my mother's death also triggered thoughts about life after death, about our limited time on earth and how humans manage the land and our common resources that our children must inherit.

Climate change is the key challenge for our time. Will the masses of ice in different parts of the world melt so much, that land areas become flooded and uninhabitable?
Will humans have to move to another planet?
Will the outer space continue to be common territories to all people in the world?

The motifs are scanned, divided into three layers and reassembled again as handprinted color photogravure. They appear soft and delicate and bring memories, feelings and thoughts to mind.
