from 8:30pm – midnight, January 25th 2011 at New Plymouth Observatory
The debut launch of ‘Areosphere and Atmosphere’ will take place as a late night screening event at the New Plymouth observatory, Marsland Hill, New Plymouth. A double video projection and an experimental sound composition will be played on the dome.
While we wait for darkness to fall, an open panel discussion between the artists Nina Czegledy and Janine Randerson and astronomers John Calcott and Paul Moss will take place. We will focus on the polar regions of Mars and Earth, from Science fiction imaginings to ‘terraforming’.
This event is open to the public, as well as New Plymouth Astronomical Society members and SCANZ artists-in-residence. Come along!
