Michael Benson: the art of Otherworlds


If you are not familiar, Michael Benson is, among other things, an artist that takes NASA probe photographs and converts them into color images. He has been doing this since the mid 90’s. You have probably seen his work on the web or in books.

Reconstructing the B/W photos is a fascinating process where the various filtered digital data from the probes is assembly back into true color. The video is a short discussion on the process and why he does it along with some very nice examples by the artist.

The Art of Otherworlds just closed in London and reopened at Natural History Museum in Vienna. I hope it comes to the US sometime soon.
