DESCRIPTION

 

This site specific installation recontextualizes the historic propaganda of the Cold War Space Race, imaging an alternative history that subverts patriarchal, nationalistic imagery with botanical iconography – the rocket ship for the flower. Thematically, the work acknowledges Lancaster’s role in space technology, while in a tongue and cheek manner suggesting the beautification of space is as worthy a goal as manifest destiny of unknown galaxies and global dominance.
