Space Traveling: A Lecture by Agnes Meyer-Brandis

Agnes Meyer-Brandis’s poetic-scientific investigations weave fact, imagination, storytelling, and myth; past, present, and future. Ten years ago she founded the Research Raft FFUR, a permanently altering meta-installation and Institute for Art and Subjective Science. The institute deals with artistic reality research that manifests itself as performances, lectures, and installations. One can have encounters with the institute in tents, on boats, on islands, on a zero gravity plane of the German Aerospace Agency, at conferences, in museums, or even on a glacier.
In this lecture, Meyer-Brandis will present on some of her projects, including “The Moon Goose Colony: Lunar Migration Bird Facility.”
Meyer-Brandis will be part of the MIT Media Lab Space Exploration Initiative's third annual private event, Beyond the Cradle: Envisioning a New Space Age on Thursday, March 14, 2019, which will be live streamed. The March 15 presentation is open to the public and will expand upon the ideas covered during the Media Lab event.
This presentation is part of Diversifying Space, a Center for Art, Science & Technology (CAST) Mellon Faculty Grant project led by Professor Joe Paradiso with Marie-Pier Boucher and Xin Liu.
