Dawn Mission

The works are three-dimensional versions of images found on the web. The sculptures portray proteins, cells, planets and light – things we cannot see with the naked eye due to their microscopic size or vast distance.

Katja Novitskova charts the limits of human perception while commenting on the impossibility of remaining invisible in this era of ever-growing surveillance. Data is constantly being collected and registered by all manner of devices from drones to electronic microscopes.
