Gotye heads to outer space for Aphids’ Forever Now
2014-03-04 00:00 by TravisB
If you could create one minute of art to be sent into outer space, what would it be? That is the question that Gotye and American vocalist Amanda Palmer will soon answer with their original contributions (in sound or audio visual format) to Aphids’ Forever Now project.
Gotye and Palmer top the list in the first announcement of commissioned musicians and visual artists contributing to this inspired project. To date, the artists include acclaimed French composer Pierre Henry, Swedish saxophonist Mats Gustaffson, Mexican artist Ivan Puig, Australian two person art collective Soda_Jerk, musician James Ferraro and Famous New Media Artist Jeremy Bailey.
Forever Now is inspired by the Golden Record sent into space on the Voyager space probe in 1977. Curated by Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan, the record was intended to represent the best of humanity. Forever Now seeks to create a new Golden Record for the 21st question, ‘What is humanity now?’
The project is curated by Brian Ritchie (Violent Femmes and MOMA FOMA), Aphids’ Artistic Director, Willoh S. Weiland, Jeff Khan (co-director, Performance Space) and Thea Baumann (Aphids’ Artistic Associate).
