In August 2012, global media exploded with the news that NASA's Curiosity Rover had successfully landed on Mars. The Rover's mission is to take samples and search for the ingredients of ancient life. In conjunction with this incredible achievement, NASA also produced Mars Panorama: Next Best Thing to Being There, a 360-degree panoramic image of the surface of Mars captured by the Opportunity Rover a few years prior to the landing of Curiosity.

Curiosity and Opportunity: Next Best Thing to Being There, a solo exhibition in the form of a panoramic application. The resulting show features several existing pieces, artifacts and appropriated images, expressing the unity of art, technology and nature as form-finding processes based on curiosity and opportunity.
