Mungo Thomson: Negative Space

Mungo Thomson: Negative Space




What do black holes, distant galaxies, solar systems, nebulae and supernovas look like when seen in the negative, suddenly devoid of the color black? Mesmerizing, abstract, strangely familiar and yet hauntingly strange. This artist's book collects a group of images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope, which the artist also uses in an ongoing series of photographic murals which can be custom-sized for walls and architectural spaces and installed as wallpaper. The four-color images are in fact inverted photographs of outer space made by the Hubble Space Telescope. Conceived by the artist in collaboration with designer Connie Purtil, it is part of a series edited by Christoph Keller. It was launched at the 2006 Art Basel Miami.
