Artist or scientist, have you got an idea for art in spaceNULL This
is your chance to share it with other like-minded people and
organisations. The UK Space Art forum is an annual meeting
for artists and scientists interested in the artistic possibilities
of space exploration.
Organised by the Arts Catalyst, the science-art agency, since
1999, previous forums have included presentations by
Cornelia Parker, who outlined her plans for sending a
meteorite into space, and Slovenians artists Dragan
Zhivadinov and Marko Peljhan who produced an entire
theatre performance in zero gravity. Organisations
represented have included the National Space Science
Centre, the Arts Council of England, Jodrell Bank, the Calouste
Gulbenkian Foundation, the Sci-art Consortium and Imperial
College of Science Technology and Medicine.
This year we will focus on work about human and robotic
space exploration. (guest speaker - who will speak about
work with the former MIR station - to be announced)
