SPACE - Tom Sachs at the Park Ave Armory

There is an amazing interactive experience opening at the Park Ave Armory this week.

Tom Sachs: SPACE PROGRAM: MARS is an incredible exploration into the NASA program to Mars and beyond.  When you get to the armory you will be impressed by the depth and detail of the exhibit.  Around every corner there is a new bricolage installation which captivates and intrigues you.   Tom constructs his projects with incredible detail and imagination.  Every time you review an item you are intrigued.

See all the details here - and I've included some images from my preview there over the past few days.  Realize this is a very large space station.  Head over to see all the pieces and experience an actual launch simulation.

SPACE PROGRAM: MARS is a demonstration of all that is necessary for survival, scientific exploration, and colonization in extraterrestrial environs: from food delivery systems and entertainment to agriculture and human waste disposal. Sachs and his studio team of thirteen will man the installation, regularly demonstrating the myriad procedures, rituals, and tasks of their mission. The team will also “lift off” to Mars several times throughout their residency at the Armory, with real-time demonstrations playing out various narratives from take-off to landing, including planetary excursions, their first walk on the surface of Mars, collecting scientific samples, and photographing the surrounding landscape.
