That which We Call A Rose...in Space

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Funded by a NASA SC Space Consortium grant, "That which We Call a Rose...in Space" engages audiences with questions pertaining to the human exploration of worlds other than our own. This work-in-progress will present selections of an interactive, multi-media installation that imagines the terrain of other planetary bodies as potential sites for embodied human exploration. Audience members will -- viscerally and virtually -- experience selected topographical features of the Moon, Mars, Saturn's moon Titan, and the asteroid Bennu.

This embodied exploration will be augmented through the implementation of computer modeling; live actors, robots, and puppets will also populate the space. Audience members will be asked to share their thoughts on the piece to aid in its development process.
