LACMA: UPGRADE AVAILABLE, MISSION UPDATE
This is the second update with Art + Technology Lab grant recipient Julia Christensen. For the past year, the artist has been working with Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s A-Team to envision an artwork for a long term interstellar mission and also develop a 200-year operational CubeSat in low-Earth orbit. The CubeSat will send data about it’s operational “health” back and forth with a network of trees on Earth, which will be sending data about their health (such as responses to light and water).
