Since 2006, Guillermo Faivovich and Nicolas Goldberg, the Argentinian contemporary artist duo, have been engaged in an intensive and wide-ranging research project — "A Guide to Campo del Cielo" — that forms the basis of their practice. Campo del Cielo is located in northern Argentina and was the site of a meteor shower an estimated 4,000 years ago.
For this exhibition, 12 unique prints further the artists’ current line of research examining a meteorite. New images are harvested from thinly sliced sections of the meteorite under a petrographic microscope, an expedition to reveal the stunningly brilliant and mysterious silicate inclusions.
Located in the Design and the Arts Library, this exhibit is part of the Visual LIT series, a collaboration between ASU Art Museum and ASU Libraries and is supported by the Andy Warhol Foundation, Helme Prinzen Endowment, ASU Design and the Arts Library, and Paramo Galeria.
