Martian Recoil

Many speaks of Mars. We are going there. Apparently. How? When? Why? Movies are made, books are written. People are wondering, and so am I. This project is about that wonder.

I have gone into the underground lava tunnels of Mars. This is where the Martians will live. This is the setting for my project.

The project is about a grid, projected onto the lava tunnel wall. Holes are drilled in the marked spots. Plugs are placed in the holes. Poles are placed in the plugs. A roll of textile is being stretched out in the formation. Multiple constellations, same grid, same system. A work station, a lounge chair, a hammock, a bookcase. Or nothing.
