Practice Run #1

Posted: January 19, 2015 in Global Perspectives.

Today was the first practice run of the installation having needed to be adapted again. Tim is in America so we decided to try out a global interaction using Skype. The narrative of the installation is ‘Saving Our Solar System’.


There are 7 planets, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune. Audience members take the planets (in this case balloons) on an orbit around the sun after establishing there planet & astronaut ID to ‘Mission Control’. Mission control will be the Skype video conversation with Tim in America. Whilst on an orbit around the sun a musical improvisation will take place whilst ‘Mission Control’ will give fun facts about the relative orbiting planet. The music improvisation will come from me on the keyboard and Tim will use a guitar through Skype. Hopefully the inflatable planets will arrive in time for the final performance however there is another dress rehearsal on wednesday 21st jan. We will work on the script for the installation and set it up with more care for the dress rehearsal.
