200 placelessness

The Artwork of Placelessness is a substitute for Planet Earth.
Its presence creates virtual closeness to the home planet and its unique meaning.




Off the orbit the cosmic explorer will experience an unknown distance to his/her place of origin. From neighbour planet Mars, all those things which have been important and meaningful for the sojourner will fade from sight: the natural environment of Earth, as well as its cultural, social, and political environments. Today, one can only speculate about how the future explorer will react.

The reason is that no situation of comparable spatial distance and alienation exists in human history. Therefore, artwork of Placelessness is based on concepts of place and their unique meaning for the individual.
