Presse 'Orbitant Issue'
THIS IS NOT A PROPOSAL!
What we see doing looks and feels nothing like This here.
Send Art into space? Not at all. Exhibit Art in Space? No. par-abolic flying
– weightlessness – No! No going up there to disappear. We like It down here
and anyway we are sort of already gone. Surveilling Earth with a camera is
just too military looking.
We intend to: PICTURE DATA FROM SPACE SOME SPACE. Use Orbit
as the raw material for Sculpture. Digitally and architecturally polemicize
the emergence of Orbitization with sensory data received by our Ground installation
on handies on Earth where ever.
