collaborative works that use, in part, space flight technology.  The
4th International Space Arts Workshop is sponsored by Taksha
University in collaboration with the STUDIO for Creative Inquiry at
Carnegie Mellon University, the SETI Institute, Singularity
University, and the Zero Gravity Arts Consortium.

The mission of the SETI Institute is to explore, understand and
explain the origin, nature, and prevalence of life in the universe.
The SETI Institute's Artist in Residence program facilitates
cross-disciplinary artistic expression in order to further research
these same goals. The SETI Institute’s first Artist in Residence is
Charles Lindsay, a multi-media artist interested in the rapid
assimilation of technology as it becomes a driving force in all
aspects of human evolution.
