Origami Space Race

Installation, 2009

Origami Space Race is an initiative for alternative space programmes based on open source strategies. Literally, it is a race for the development of the best origami spacecraft. The project’s main aim is a turn-ing point in the approach to space technology towards greener technologies.

This project is part of the international cooperation Exchange Emergences between the Japan Media Arts Festival (jp) (http://plaza.bunka.go.jp/english/) and the Coded Cultures Festival (at).
