Art 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.
The Orbitants.
