Time Capsules to Space – 7PM SHARP
Come and be a part of NYC’s First Artist Space Broadcast.
On April 15, 16, 17 a unique series of sonic, visual, and kinetic performances by pioneering space-minded New York artists will be broadcast live into outer space. These virtual time capsules will be transmitted using a custom-built antenna.
Inspired by the existence of the Voyager Golden Record of 1977, Time Capsules to Space is NYC’s first artist space broadcast series created in the hopes of transmitting interplanetary / interdimensional understanding into the cosmos and to inspire a deeper human appreciation of Earth’s relationship to the greater cosmic landscape.
Audiences are welcome to transmit their own video messages to space after each evening’s event.
Please join us and be a part of this transmission!
