433 Eros

photography: Toni Hafkenscheid

433 Eros features a NASA image of the near-earth asteroid 433 Eros that is part of the Amor group of asteroids. Vaguely resembling a potato in shape, its geographical features are named after famous lovers from history and mythology such as Lolita, Casanova, or Psyche. The image is staged and framed in such a way that it functions like a black mirror, with a glass “pool” reflecting the wall-mounted photograph.
