Rocket Science

A poster series (2004-2016)

The earth is the cradle of mankind, but one cannot stay in the cradle forever. (Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, 1911)

A series of poster prints featuring found-footage of failed attempts to launch rockets, opposed with super-imposed quotes of Ronald Reagan's address to the nation on the occasion of the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster, turning them into a highly ambiguous metaphor for technology and progress.

The more technology advances, the more
fateful will be its impact on humanity. But if
the world's ethical standards and moral laws
fail to rise and be adhered to with the
advances ofour technological revolution, we
run the distinct risk that we shall all perish.
(Wernher von Braun)
