Curator Paulo Arraiano, explains “1/81” comes from the correlation of the existing mass between the Earth and the Moon. Being this last one the Earth’s only natural satellite and the fifth biggest of the Solar System, it’s also the biggest natural satellite of a planet in the solar system. Regarding its primary body size, it has a 27% diameter and 60% of Earth’s density, representing 1/81 of its mass.

“We correlate ourselves in a so-called contemporary society controlled by artificial satellites, where the speed of a post-digital and new media generation dictates time and velocity, and artificially replaces the natural/analogical world. “Scrolling” reality in search of “new stories”, one’s loss of references for contemplation has become constant, increasingly contributing to distance human beings from nature. A reality where the pictorial tradition of landscaping no longer seems adequate to deal with the intricate web of meanings brought forth by the great networks and metropolises.”
