"BEYOND CASSINI" is an experimental art installation celebrating the life and death of one of Nasa's most successful satellite programs.
hpgrp GALLERY NEW YORK is pleased to announce the opening of "BEYOND CASSINI", an original new art work by WOW, a visual design studio based in Tokyo and London in collaboration with Director, Tyler Bowers and Artist, Director Gabriel Pulecio. The opening reception with the artists will be held on Friday, September 15th, 2017.
It’s been said, just before a person dies their life’s biggest moments flash before their eyes. “Beyond Cassini” uses this narrative to celebrate the accomplishments of one of the most successful and beloved Satellites in space exploration history. As Cassini begins its final flight into Saturn’s upper atmosphere with a mission of disintegration, visuals flash back through time giving viewers highlights of this dying satellite’s life. Fleeting moments and flashbacks allow viewers to celebrate 20 years of Cassini’s achievements in a very personal, non-linear, stylized exhibition.
