Based on an early moving picture technique, an electromechanical structure is designed to form an “analogue screen” for its subject. Artwork itself is progressive, since the base structure acts as a media player while the animation discs are interchangeable. During Sónar+D Istanbul 2018, six unique Fenakistiskop’s featuring derived content from NASA’s public 3D model archive will be premiered as a experiential tribute to the recent developments in space technology, the age of open source knowledge and as a celebration of humankind’s collective space heritage.
