z33: space odyssey 2.0 picture dump

seeker-exploration-mission-team-z33

Four months ago I recieved an email from Ils Huygens, curator of Space Odyssey 2.0 at Z33 asking for support with Angelo Vermeulen‘s Seeker Project. I didn’t need to be persuaded to build a spaceship! So here I was, spending weeks with a wild mix of people who explore the possibility of flying into space or initiate projects related to stories around the subject. Last night the exhibition opened its doors. It will be running until 19th May of this year. It is needless to say that you should visit Z33 after you had a look at the images below.

Above: Team of Seeker Exploration Mission. All six members, Angelo Vermeulen, Lonny van Ryswyck, Gaston Wuestenbergs, Vera Thaens, Hanneke van der Werf and Giacomo Piona Piovan, spend 36 h in the spaceship without leaving it in order to find out if life in the co-creation sculpture is possible.
