In Failing Forward Marjolein Blom explores what connects art and science. Her own photographic work of minor and major mysteries from the everyday world, is interwoven with images from the NASA archive, depicting scientists working on models for space travel. A kaleidoscopic work of oddities that focuses upon the notion of the attempt.
This book revolves around truth-finding, bewilderment and human control. It navigates the two parallel worlds of our scientific and daily reality. While shifting between the enigmatic and the specific, between the clear and the ambiguous, it depicts the delusion of people ever being in control in this world.
