A Dialogue At Eight Kilometers Per Second
In April 2022, The AX-1 mission launched to the ISS, with four space-tourists on board. As part of the 17 days mission, a Public Movement Agent conducted one-on-one meetings with an astronaut, in real time. Within the aperture between the mission control room and the ISS deck, the two performed a reflective encounter, examining the historical and political implications of the human journey to space, aside the emotional and psychological implications it evokes.
A Dialogue At Eight Kilometers Per Second offers a new form of knowledge that can be revealed in this encounter, between space and earth, past and future, science and fiction.
