Contrast And Time. NASA International Space Station Art Collection Outer Space Inter-Stellar Mission 2015. First Launched at Mona Foma January 18, 2015
This project was originally commissioned by Aphids Events Inc. as part of the Forever Now Project. Forever Now is a curatorial project that responds to our cultural obsession with immortalising ourselves. In the footsteps of the Golden Record sent into space in 1977 on the Voyager space probe, curators Willoh S. Weiland, Brian Ritchie, Jeff Khan and Thea Baumann, worked with the international community to research, curate and create a contemporary golden record containing 44 audio and audio-visual works. The 44 selected works were launched into space as part of a spectacular concert in January 2015. In this short film, Amorphous addresses the concept of time through a motion self-portrait. Of the project, she writes "I have purposely removed identifying features in order to represent “any human being” -a body moving through space and time in a repetitive pendulum motion."
