A black box is an audio recording device within an aircraft with the purpose of recording events in case of incident, meaning it is an intrument meant to collect clues. BLACK BOX is a growing compilation of experimental imagery that explores the inevitability of human interplanetary colonization. Like the clues left on an actual black box these images are left to the interpretation of those who find them.
In theory, the closest that Earth and Mars would approach each other would be when Mars is at its closest point to the sun (perihelion) and Earth is at its farthest (aphelion). This would put the planets only 33.9 million miles (54.6 million kilometers) apart. However, this has never happened in recorded history.
