Geistė Kinčinaitytė

Kinčinaitytė is an artist and researcher, who calls herself an alien anthropologist. Her image-making practice is defined by encounters with the eerie, understood as both the cessation of the comfort zone – whether self, human, habit, habitat, milieu — and an associations to a yet-to-be-identified presence. You Belong to Me focuses on how the visual data accumulated during interplanetary exploration missions forms an anthropocentric reality of Mars. NASA research projects, which grant free access to photographs of the surface of Mars taken by the camera-equipped rovers, provide a unique opportunity to question the digital images produced on a distant planet which has not yet been directly experienced by humankind.
