Great Moments in UFO History by Davis & Davis Research Labs


Artists’ Statement

Ufologist Jacques Vallee has theorized that the UFO phenomenon is organized associatively, much like human memory or the world wide web. For the series, “Great Moments in UFO History,” we have photographically restaged certain high-strangeness UFO events that are well-known to UFO enthusiasts. We have then dissected the narratives associated with these events and pulled out key words and phrases (names, dates, etc.) for possible use in a computer database. Such a database could then be searched for associative links between these events and the world at large, presumably resulting in a better understanding of both the UFO phenomenon and ourselves.
