Life on Mars? We like to think so. During last July’s Blood Moon lunar eclipse, planet Mars was at its closest to Earth. There is no need for a century-long wait nor holding on for interplanetary tours to become a reality as the outer space is spreading into our interiors. Furniture elements like grounded meteorites, asteroids becoming decorative objects, planetary shades and subtly disguised moon shapes, otherworldly textures and surfaces resembling infinity. As it appears everything on Earth has already been seen or done, stretching the imagination beyond the boundaries of our small self-contained planet seems to be, now more than ever, a redeeming necessity.
