Martin Curiosity Rover

As man starts to explore other heavenly bodies, inevitably leaving his mark on their surfaces, it is interesting to playfully reflect on this new human context.


Here Martin, protected by his new skin, tattooed from head to toe with the map of the world as then known to the medieval monks at Hereford Cathedral, sets out to explore the surface of Mars.


It is a gentle subversion of the “exotic” tattooed men who were put on display as “marvels” in the 17th and 18th century western world.
