I see Extreme Deep Field as a comment on the human standardized perception of light, which shows to be

quite an inexact version. Thus in a larger perspective the work speaks of the human perception of the

surrounding universe, as well as the, in my optics funny misunderstood, relationship between man made

technology and real life phenomena. In that way it is an ironic and a critical comment on the idea about a

“right” understanding of light. My inspiration for the title Extreme Deep Field came from an article I read

about a NASA project, “eXtreme Deep Field”. In brief, astronomers have recently assembled a new, improved

portrait of mankind’s deepest-ever view of the universe and the portrait is assembled by combining 10 years

of NASA telescopic photographs revealing thousands of galaxies, the smallest ones only one ten-billionth

the brightness of what the human eye can perceive.
