The BLOB of Im/Possible Images

By Rosa Menkman

Imagine you could obtain an 'impossible' image of any object or phenomenon that you think is important, with no limits on spatial, temporal, energy, signal/noise or cost resolutions. What image would you create? (the answer can be a hypothetical image of course!)

This was the question I asked every scientist I spoke to during my Arts at CERN/Collide Barcelona residency. In the BLOB I am presenting some of the insights this research has opened up to me.

The BLOB (Binary Large OBject) gives a home to the collection of Im/Possible images that all together illustrate the concept of the impossible image and the relationships between affordance, resolution and compromise.

As different Axes of Affordance (X,Y,Z and α) cut the BLOB, they define what is possible to resolve, and what images are compromised, or in other words, will never be rendered. While normally these compromised images would never find their way to our eyes, the hypothetical realms of the BLOB offer pasture to these impossible renders.

Via the open call you can submit your own Im/Possible image. These images might be considered for implementation and exhibition.

The BLOB of Im/Possible Images is made in commission for Haus der elektronischen Künste Basel (HEK)
