Tom Sachs, dessen Arbeiten ich hier schon öfter gebloggt hatte, zeigt derzeit in der Armory in New York eine Mars Missions-Installation. Designboom hat ein paar schicke Bilder davon und ich liebe Leatherface on Mars:
SPACE PROGRAM: MARS is a demonstration of all that is necessary for survival, scientific exploration, and colonization in extraterrestrial environs: from food delivery systems and entertainment to agriculture and human waste disposal. Sachs and his studio team of thirteen will man the installation, regularly demonstrating the myriad procedures, rituals, and tasks of their mission. The team will also "lift off" to Mars several times throughout their residency at the Armory, with real-time demonstrations playing out various narratives from take-off to landing, including planetary excursions, their first walk on the surface of Mars, collecting scientific samples, and photographing the surrounding landscape.
