Artist Trevor Paglen collaborated with materials scientists at the . Trevor Paglen - The Last Pictures from Creative Time. The Last Pictures featured in Wired Magazine.
Artist Trevor Paglen collaborated with materials scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to develop a micro-etched disc with one hundred photographs, encased in a gold-plated shell, designed withstand the rigors of space and to last for billions of years. Inspired by years of conversations and interviews with scientists, artists, anthropologists, and philosophers, the images chosen for The Last Pictures tell an impressionistic story of uncertainty, paradox, and anxiety about the future.
Only 8 left in stock (more on the way). The book showcases a diversity of photographic technologies, from surveillance shots taken by a drone to close-ups of the Ebola virus captured by an electron micrograph; this shuffling together of radically disparate scales makes for a thought-provoking browsing experience. The Last Pictures tells a dark but urgent story about present conditions of representational frustration. In the here and now, we have this book, a partial but chilling document of what we were, what we are, and what we might become.

The project, The Last Pictures, rolls out in New York next week, ending a five-year journey. When invited by the public art organization Creative Time to make a project about space, he proposed to somehow send up images with a satellite, and that those images would be a story about what happened to the people who build the great ring of dead machines around Earth. Paglen micro-etched 100 photographs onto a silicon disc encased in a gold-plated shell.
