Projects > Mission Control, 2006

Project Description:

Roughly 1-week before and 1-week after I was born NASA launched Space Probes Voyagers 1 & 2 into outer space. According to, my current home is 691.33 miles away from my birth hospital. NASA statistics indicate that probes are now over 8.5 billion miles away from Earth. They are the most distant man-made objects from our planet. Having been launched at practically the same time, I imagine the Space Probes and I are twins. This project pictures an imaginary Mission Control Room for a middle-aged space probe. I constructed a scale model of the space & used G.I. Joe action figures from my own childhood to draw from in the project.
