Inês Rebelo explores the relationship between peculiar scientific facts and the empirical experience of everyday moments. Rebelo’s vocabulary includes images and text from scientific publications, which she uses to map distant events and patterns in outer space such as stars, planetary nebulae and galaxies. These re-contextualised and re-presented facts often carry a humorous tone by confronting us with the absurdity and ultimate futility of mapping.
