You can almost hear Capt. James T. Kirk say it: “Space: the final frontier…” The thought behind the opening lines to Star Trek are pretty clear: there is a lot of nothing out there and there is bound to be something in it. And while the classic television show may have posited space as the last place we have left to explore, artists and designers don’t have the luxury to think of space once all the other work is done.
This week Ryan and Garreth sit dow to talk about space and just how full it is. Space is a starting point for us all, and it is the area in which our physical work lives. What makes it up? How do we understand it? And how does its ontology actually impact the work we make and how we make it?
