Concluding centuries of speculation about extraterrestrial intelligence, conceptual artist Jonathon Keats has discovered that a radio signal detected by the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico contains artwork broadcast from deep space. Initially dismissed by researchers as meaningless, the transmission is now claimed to be the most significant addition to the artistic canon since the Mona Lisa, or even the Venus of Willendorf. Painstakingly decoded and transferred onto canvas by Keats, the artwork was unveiled to the public at the Magnes on July 30, 2006 and the exhibition ran through January 14, 2007.

This film was produced for Magnes by Benjamin Pierce.
