For her works, Katja Novitskova adapts images from online sources that refer to realities lying beyond the capacities of the human eye, but which have long entered our lives as visual artifacts. Today, almost all aspects of human and increasingly nonhuman lives are registered or modeled by software on an environmental scale. Data-collection and processing have long transcended the limits of our planet and have become the tools to navigate beyond and throughout Earth. The artist book Dawn Mission explores the radically new articulation of the role of the image, and how constant mediation gains an ecological dimension.

With texts by Lucy Chinen, Nora N. Khan, Venus Lau, Katja Novitskova, Tobias Peper, Bettina Steinbrügge, and Agatha Wara.
