Abstract
‘Dust Image Fragments Ghosts’ is an artistic exploration of my view of heterotopia from a writer’s perspective, the dimension of the fragmental, and the space in between the text and the reader. The starting point are 3D micrographs of dust samples from mobile and immobile cultural artefacts, which were part of a research project which investigated the aesthetic potential of dust and its information content from the perspective of the conservation and restoration. Dust has the power to make visible the absent, to show what must have been there. Fragments as a literary form show what might be there, in between or around. ‘Dust Image Fragments Ghosts’ follows the traces of seemingly empty space. It is a reflexive literary expedition into the landscapes of dust, a ghostly universe between micro and macro, reader and writer, image and imagination.
