History changed on October 4, 1957, when the Soviet Union successfully launched Sputnik, thus marking the dawn of the Space Age. With humankind gaining access into outer space for the first time in history, the launch of Sputnik changed the way we see our planet and we see ourselves in relation to the universe.
NOMINATIONS SOUGHT FOR THE LEONARDO DA VINCI ARTS IN SPACE AWARDS
The Zero Gravity Arts Consortium welcomes international nominations for the next round of The Leonardo Da Vinci Arts in Space Awards.
These awards will be extended for the second time in history during
the 33rd Annual International Space Development Conference Awards
Gala, sponsored by the National Space Society and others that will
take place in May of 2014 in Los Angeles, California.
Planetary Collective’s film “Overview” will be shown as part of the AstroArt Programme in collaboration with Astronomers Without Borders (AWB) Global Astronomy Month (GAM) on April 12, from 14:30 to 16:30 UT.
The film, which has garnered more than 1.7 plays on Vimeo since its premiere at Harvard University on December 7, 2012, features interviews with five astronauts and portrays the enormous power of the Overview Effect (the cognitive shift resulting from seeing the Earth from space and in space) in words and images.
Students who will be getting an M.A., M.F.A. or Ph.D. on a subject related to the intersection of art, science and technology are encouraged to submit an abstract of their thesis to LABS (Leonardo Abstract Services). This peer-reviewed database has been in existence for over 10 years and functions as a way for international artists and scholars to learn about the work of the next generation.

"How do you build an monument scale sculptural machine that will last as long as civilization? For the last fifteen years The Long Now Foundation and Alexander Rose have been working on building this icon of long-term thinking. Rose is currently managing the 10,000 Year Clock project underway in West Texas where they have already excavated over 500 vertical feet through solid rock to house the Clock.
