The video plays with some photographic maps of the surface of Mars, their deformation and fragmentation symbolizing human knowledge of the cosmos which seems to be inversely proportional to scientific discoveries. Whenever man’s tension to reveal the unknown seems to have reached some goal, the possibilities and hypotheses of what we still have to understand multiply. When we apply the research-discovery-knowledge paradigm to the study scale of the cosmos, what got lost in our knowledge explodes into infinite possibilities; the universe is the measure and materialization of our understanding: dust in an imagined infinity.
