This contact sheet is made of 30 photos of close-up pictures of the sampled material tube as it's prepared for sealing and storage. This image was taken by CACHECAM onboard NASA's Mars rover Perseverance on Sol 90
Limited edition. 100 x 100 cm
NASA's Mars Perseverance rover acquired this image using its onboard Sample Caching System Camera (CacheCam), located inside the rover underbelly. It looks down into the top of a sample tube to take close-up pictures of the sampled material and the tube as it's prepared for sealing and storage.
This image was acquired on May 22, 2021 (Sol 90) at the local mean solar time of 15:42:11.
Beyond the Martian landscapes, we see above all enigmatic and poetic images , which lead us to think that these prints are the first contemporary works of art created by the AI of a robot on another planet more than 62 million kilometers away.
This is quite simply the first extraterrestrial artificial intelligence to create

The first extraterritorial
AI based intelligence
making ART on MARS
Perseverance rover built by NASA (USA) and ESA (Europe) is walking/rolling on Mars since February 18th 2021.
This rover is equipped with 17 cameras that it used to film its descent on the red planet as well as its first steps on the Martian soil. Every day, it takes new pictures that are sent to Earth. Whether the photo is "successful" (instrument, rock; landscape) or not (black, gray, yellow or white square), the photos are published in the order in which they are received.
onMARS art prints are the result of the assembly of temporal series of photos taken by the rover, and respect the order in which these photos were captured, sent, received, processed and published here on Earth.
One could therefore say that the artist is the Rover itself. By triggering his shot, the Rover (the author) has in fact chosen the subject, the timing, the angle, the framing, the luminosity and the object of the photo. The only subjective (because human) artistic choice was to select a specific time series that will define the order of presentation of the photos in these magnificent prints.
Beyond the Martian landscapes, we see above all enigmatic and poetic images of parachutes unfurling like a flower in the process of blooming, shots of the earth, enigmatic scientific instruments, which lead us to think that these prints are the first contemporary works of art created by the AI of a robot on another planet more than 62 million kilometers away.
This is quite simply the first extraterritorial AI based intelligence making ART on MARS
A disturbing and poetic immersion on this distant planet that has never been so close and familiar thanks to the technological prowess of human beings always in search of exploration.
