40 years of the Voyager Golden Record 
In 1977 two gilded records were send on a journey to interstellar space on board of the twin-spacecrafts Voyager 1 and Voyager 2. Stored on the discs are nearly two hours of audio material (music, sounds, words) and also 120 audio encoded images (photography, graphic, text) in order to describe culture and living space of mankind to a possible finder in a distant future and space. Today Voyager 1 is the furthest artefact and, since 2012, also the first one in interstellar space. John Harten’s art book project reflects in 120 artist contributions and four essays the compelling multi-layered idea and approach of this iconic data disk between album, atlas and archive and deals specifically with the images stored on the Golden Record.
Public Folder is a serial book project by John Harten (co-founder and art director of MAGAZINE, Cologne). The Book (Public Folder #3): Ed. John Harten

The composition of nearly 18 minutes is a hommage to a piece on the actual Golden Record where the history of earth and mankind is explained in a soundcollage. Among other sources, Beyer uses science data from the Voyager mission. Record 2 (PF 3 / GR 2) A1: 
A.W. – Per Monstra Ad Astra
