It's your chocolate but it's still not your chocolate
Reykjavik Art Museum, 2017
The work compares the planet Mars and Mars the chocolate bar.
There is a certain void between the object as we know it and the way the object is, itself.
Even though we throw away a Mars and never see it again it still exists and takes up space somewhere else.
Yeah, where is all the Mars?
The work contemplates the role of humans in the discovery of the Mars' and what parts were played by other materials.
Marketing campaigns of the Mars chocolate are up for discussion, and how space is introduced to the public through pop culture.
In 2000 an advertisement from Mars chocolate stated:
Who knows? Maybe in a 100 years we'll be eating earth bars on Mars.
