Possibility of C7p, 2015
mixed-media, video and performances
On November 12th 2014, The European Space Agency made the first landing of a spacecraft on a comet nucleus, 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. This event coincides with a global push by private and government enterprise to look towards asteroids as a solution to dwindling mineral resources and environmental instability on earth. Over a two-month period in Spring, 2015, I worked with fifth grade pupils of Thurgood Marshall Academy Lower School in East Harlem where we collectively imagined possible futures of work, housing and community living on asteroid bodies.
