The images from the Mars rover Curiosity have a certain mystery, coupled with a sense of optimism for finding evidence of signs of intelligent life on Mars. This image is an attempt to create an image with a Mars-rover-like sensibility paired with evidence of intelligent activity. This image reminds me of hieroglyphics and in both making this image and viewing it I get the sense that in this vast universe there may be some other intelligent life form. Maybe this is their way of communicating. One day the Mars rover may just send back images like this, with strange but meaningful markings that could prove that we are in fact not alone in this universe.
