Artist Trevor Paglen’s The Last Pictures is ready for liftoff! The work, an archival disc containing 100 photographs representing modern human history, launches into outer space today, November 20, starting at 1:15PM EST. Paglen’s disc will orbit Earth for billions of years affixed to the exterior of the communications satellite EchoStar XVI, becoming what may be the longest-lasting material artifact of contemporary civilization. Online audiences can watch the live here: www.echostar.com/launch.
