At 1:15 p.m. EST today, Trevor Paglen’s The Last Pictures, a disc containing 100 photographs representing “modern human history,” will be launched into outer space aboard the EchoStar XVI communications satellite. You can watch live here.
A catalogue of the development of The Last Pictures is available in a book published by University of California Press and Creative Time Books. Creative Time’s website also has a documentary about how the project came together.
