If there is no wind, row. (Latin Proverb)



"The image of the dead astronaut is a cross-fertilization of different sources. It has been partially influenced by recent publication of de-classified Russian reports about the number of cosmonauts who died during the space race of the 1960s; Russia and the US had lost over a dozen men trying to beat each other to the moon, but minimized or out right denied the tragic events at the time. The idea that these spacemen were heroic in life, but forgotten in death embodies a distinctly modernistic pursuit of progress, a sense of constantly striving forward and discarding the failures of the past. The sculpture also references the cover illustration of dime store science fiction novels of the 1960’s as well as countless Hollywood films where the image of an astronaut a drift in space is meant to symbolize a journey into the abyss. Such imagery abounds in classic sci-fi films, such 2001 Space Odyssey, as well as contemporary blockbuster such as Armageddon, not to mention other forms of popular culture, such as David Bowie’s 1969 “Space Oddity” (Major Tom song)."
