> DESCRIPTION

'The Moons of Jupiter' is a series of photographs of fruit, arranged like the waxing and waning of Jupiter's moons. The title of this work with a mango is 'Thebe', the moon discovered by the Voyager shuttle in March 1979. The mango is a signifier of life, as well as a unit of export and economy. By using the mango to create a kind of calendar, the artist explores the relationship between fantasy, economy, and the famous paraphrase by Zizek at Occupy Wall Street in 2011 - 'It is easier to imagine the end of the world, than to imagine the end of capitalism'. 'Symphonies of the Planets' is a sound installation comprising three audio tracks from the Voyager shuttle recordings made in the seventies of the magnetospheres of the planets, turned into sound frequencies. The three audio tracks play simultaneously, creating a fantasy re-mix of the noise footprint that massive planets make as they orbit the sun.
