Noah's Ark - An Improbable Space Survival Kit
|Corina Ilea ; Stefan Constatinescu
|Arvinius + Orfeus Publishing
Inspired by the survival kits used in the Apollo and Mercury space missions, ‘Noah’s Ark’ advances a set of conceptual and artistic tools to be used in a crisis situation like our present times, and to imagine the future. Vanishing bio-resources, the acceleration of global climate change, and the effects of the Anthropocene pose the urgency of survival in stronger and stronger terms. Nowadays, leaving the Earth and colonising outer space is becoming a potentially viable alternate reality. Yet ethical questions abound regarding the inhabitation of space, as well as concerning human responsibility towards this new realm. Will we also contaminate and destroy the worlds we encounter?
