VICTOR ASH ABOUT THIS WORK:
"This is my latest work following the original story of the Berlin’s Astronaut Cosmonaut. When we saw the first tv-transmission in 1969 from Apollo missions the images showed us progress, future, science and hope of a better world. In this fainted image the astronaut is telling us that he is still out there in the universe, visiting another world, future and the past meet in the present"
