Other Spacesuits : Mark Thomas Stanley

Other Spacesuits: Self-Contained Atmospheric Envelopes, Craft-Based Making Practices, and the Aesthetics of the 21st Century

Opening:          Saturday, 9 August, 6:00 pm
Continuing:      9 August – 24 August, 2014

‘Other Spacesuits’, claims the Cold-War era Apollo spacesuit as the most exuberant piece of material and cultural production in history, recognizing it as one among many in an ontological genre of self-contained atmospheric envelopes–though some of them no longer resemble ‘suits’ at all–from the gas mask to the indoor shopping mall to the 24-hour news cycle. The project uses the Apollo spacesuit as a catalyst for work on three architectural, but traditionally separate, discourses: the atmospheric and interfacial envelope, the methods of design and production, and the aesthetic projects allied with every designed object. This exhibit is the culmination of a year-long design-research project by Mark Thomas Stanley as the Visiting Fellow at Woodbury University.
