Another Final Frontier

This past summer, I had the opportunity to work with Shona Kitchen and Aly Ogasian on their project, Another Final Frontier, which explores the relationship between NASA’s Kennedy Space Center and the natural landscape it sits within, managed by Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge.

In Shona’s words: “We ironically and poetically argue that Grey Island, a man-made spoil island within the boundaries of both Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge and Kennedy Space Center, offers a viable alternative for future human habitation. The project critiques the development of commercial spaceflight missions intended to establish permanent settlements on Mars through the use of terraforming. If we consider Kennedy Space Center as our final point of departure, then Grey Island is a return, a re-encountering of a world that is both familiar, yet strange and magical.”

My photographs of their project at Grey Island are currently being exhibited at the Atlantic Center for the Arts in New Smyrna Beach, Florida, through February 22nd, 2020.
