This landscape, on the far-off planet Mars, can only be viewed on Earth thanks to technology. The artificial gaze of the periscope enables curiosity to take flight, helping the next generation to explore the possibility of life on the red planet. Fear of the unknown is overcome by curiosity about the fantastical. Both are manifested through technological means of observation. They are the source of this artificial gaze. The familiar in the unknown is brought closer by technology.”
