The Space Module

A while back, Performance One approached us to work on a multimedia installation to expand an earlier concept we produced for them that featured fake aliens. So, one of us jokingly said "we should build a spaceship".

We were thinking to explore the idea of a space module as a space for meetings. Would being so uncomfortably close to each other change the way we work and think together?

Unbeknown to us, this project would become a great mental and physical workout, but more on that later.

The module comes equipped with an interior ambient light that changes according to the mood of the astronauts.

A complete control panel lets the commander and co-pilots operate the module.

The onboard computer is slightly smarter than the Apollo Guidance Computer, which took people to the Moon. And, as a bonus, it has WiFi. Not trying to imply anything here, but just FYI.

Speaking about going places, the commander can choose one of 40 destinations and then launch the module into the void of their imagination:

Since the module is still missing its propulsion systems, we can't claim that it will fly anywhere, but at least we've equipped it with some informative user interfaces and a few interactions which should bring enjoyment to the commander and co-pilots:

Plus, there's a timer that keeps track of launch / landing / journey / meeting times:

We know what you're thinking: "I love it, but can it take selfies?"
