Go For Launch is a large scale 12 screen interactive video art installation. The artistic recreation of an Apollo Saturn 1B launch uses authentic archival NASA audio and video footage to simulate the explosive power and emotion of one of humanity’s greatest achievements. It is a monument to the success of the past and a challenge to the present generation.

‘…one of the most stunning and mind-boggling sequences of video I have ever seen.’ Diane Armitage, THE magazine, September 2009

Go For  Launch

Gardner Post and Brian Kane are artists working with video and emerging technologies in large-scale performance oriented installation and media-activism. Their new work at Munoz Waxman will include an interactive installation using original uncut NASA footage from the first space missions. It is a commentary on the Space Race, and the competition to land on the moon that was a product of the Cold War, technological superiority, and the real fear on both sides that the other might place weapons of mass destruction in space, all issues that are particularly relevant to both the region and the current political climate.
