Neil Armstrong is ready to plant the first human foot on another world, with more than half a billion people watching on television.
In a post-flight press conference, Armstrong calls the flight “a beginning of a new age.”
Through a series of conversations and interviews during her residency, Catherine will be undertaking research around key areas of space science, with a particular interest in our closest celestial neighbour.
What is the artists’ role within space exploration? How do/can artists contribute to discussions around the ethics of space exploration; colonisation and ownership of celestial bodies?
What part can we play, as creative practitioners, in these conversations?
