The Eyes and La Comète with Editions Xavier Barral presents the installation “The Comet, Rosetta’s journey”. The opening will be held on Tuesday, April 9, 2019 from 6:30pm.
A true photographic dream, the book embarked the reader for a 10-year interstellar voyage aboard the Rosetta spacecraft: departure from the Earth, crossing the clouds and then bypassing the Moon, until getting closer to Mars, to finally get lost in the starry void of the cosmos and approach the comet.
Through all these meetings, and thanks to a highly developed optical technology, striking images of the different planets but also their textures, their photographic materials and their surfaces appear on paper.
The book is accompanied by a text by Jean-Pierre Bibring, French astrophysicist at the Institute of Space Astrophysics. Present at the event, he will return to the objectives of this mission and the accomplishment of such a technological and human feat.
