100 Proofs the Earth is Not a Globe

100 Proofs the Earth is Not a Globe is a live art installation and guided performance that is part science project, part religious intervention. Infiltrating the Victorian Space Science Education Centre, your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to navigate the improbable and sail to the frontiers of misunderstanding.

Art Exhibition previously on at 2010 Next Wave Festival in Australia.
From Wednesday 19 May 2010 to Friday 28 May 2010

Meet at the 2010 Next Wave Festival Club where the journey to the next realm begins. A space shuttle will ferry you to and from state-of-the-art research facilities in a galaxy not too far away. Give yourself over to some old fashioned ecstatic transcendentalism. Or, remain safely cradled in the arms of logic and objectivity. Upon your return to the Festival Club, we recommend a stiff drink and collective debrief on what on Earth just happened.

Like molecules of water, we humans move in formation. Pack animals, we are reared to belong, facsimiles of facsimiles of inherited chromosomes. We are born into a world of Us and Them, believers and non-believers, the initiated and the ignorant. Are we recycled atoms or divine creations? Is our language one of reason or tongues? How do we make sense of our short time on earth?
