A BOYS CLUB TERRAFORMING MANIFESTO



(Teaser)


BETWEEN A ROCK AND THAT HARD GROUND, 2019. DFK, DK


CGI-animated video piece that highlights the rhetorics behind “space colonisation”. It places emphasis on the archaic-colonial vocabulary that has been preserved and reproduced by scientists, billionaire space-race entrepreneurs and pop culture. A trope and narrative based on the romanticisation of colonialism and the glorification of Christofer Columbus as heroic archetype and role model.

The voiceover was based on a transcription taken from an interview part of the documentary “the search for a new Earth”, where a NASA scientist  explains how to colonize space.
