“In 2023, artists representing the Earth will head for the Moon.”
What do you get when you curate a group comprised of a painter, musician, film director, fashion designer, etc. and send them on a space craft for a week long space-flight journey around the moon? Well, honestly, we don’t know.. yet! But we will find out in 2023 when “some of Earth’s greatest talents will board a spacecraft and be inspired in a way they have never been before.”
Japanese Entrepreneur, Yusaku Maezawa, with the help of friend Elon Musk, is the brains behind this so called revolutionary art project, #dearmoon. The group will board the BFR vehicle developed by SpaceX and head for the moon, 238,900 miles away. See details of the flight plan below:
This is the first mission of it’s kind. Perhaps the outcome will be something opposite the Golden Record? We will have to wait and see. Patiently, we at Mars Incubator are looking forward to seeing what is produced from this unique artist residency! Godspeed!
