MDRS

2018

Mixed media installation

This set recreates the airlock of the Mars Desert Research Station (MDRS), an analogue space station built by the Mars Society in the Utah desert. This is a first iteration exploring the idea of the analogue station as a fictional intervention - reframing the landscape to render Earth as another planet. By imagining the Earth strange, scientists and analogue astronauts are making the distant familiar through generating extraterrestrial experiences with “impossible” immediacy.

Part of an ongoing research project, entitled “Missions to the Outer Fringes”.
