Mars: Adrift on the Hourglass Sea

"Adrift on the Hourglass Sea," by multimedia artists Nicholas Kahn & Richard Selesnick, is a postmodern narrative that follows two nameless women as they wander in the desolate landscape of the Martian surface. As critic Sarah Falkner interprets in the introduction to her interview with the two artists, the two women "seem to be outside of linear time - perhaps having escaped an Earth catastrophe and landing on Mars to find that its own history includes an apocalypse." After absorbing the stunning tones of the opening image, readers may like to explore further in the Photographs tab, where they may ponder these provocative, mysterious images, as well as the Sculpture & Installation Shots tab, with its corresponding liminal textures. The interview is especially informative, as Kahn and Richards both explain and refuse to explain their work.
