Rattakhate Puksuk – Planet Earth is Blue29th June, 2016

In 2013, I heard the news about send people to Mars and live on Mars but never come back. This project call Mars-One project and run by a company in Netherland. The reason why is this a one-way trip because of technology.

Bas Lansdorp, head of the Mars-One project: On this world we have all the technology we need to get humans to Mars and keep them alive there. What we don’t have is the technology to get people from Mars back to Earth. The people who will be going to Mars in our missions will be settling on Mars permanently. They’ll be doing it for the rest of their lives (BBC World Service). For this project, the company wants to send only human who have specific skills as well as healthy both of mentally and physically.

I try to following about this project and news but not much that I found with many reasons. For me,It is seem to exiting and concerning at the same time when I heard the news like this. It is quite delightful that mankind can explore realm of technology, space, planet beyond the earth but at the same time I a bit worrying about the future of this blue planet that what it going to be next.

OK, find the new home, Just that.

Jennifer Spangerud & Rebecca Lindsmyr – One is not Born, but Rather Becomes29th June, 2016

Simone de Beauvoir once expressed that one is not born, but rather becomes, a woman. Through this quote she argues that femininity does not arise from differences in biology, psychology, or intellect. Rather, femininity is a construction of civilization. Woman is not born fully formed; she is shaped by her upbringing. Through the title we have excluded the word woman, to expand the concept and also to highlight its possible limitations regarding a likewise fluctuating physical body. In our artistic practice we unite in the perception of the body as a neither permanent nor definable entity. However, how we aesthetically respond to the body as a subject matter is in direct contrast to each other; the clinical set against the beastly. In this exhibition these two entry points are brought together to generate a conversation between different approaches to the body.
