(Télescope intérieur, une œuvre spatiale d’Eduardo Kac)
dir. Virgile Novarina – Paris, France
Synopsis Created by the artist Eduardo Kac to exist in weightlessness and to be made on board the International Space Station by French astronaut Thomas Pesquet, this documentary lays the foundation for a new form of art and poetry, freed from the constraints of gravity. The film takes us on an artistic and scientific journey from the conception of the work in Eduardo Kac’s studio in Chicago to its realization in orbit by Thomas Pesquet, 400 km away from Earth, during the Proxima mission of the European Space Agency. A production of the Observatoire de l’Espace, the art-science lab of the French Space Agency (CNES), with the assistance of ESA and the support of the Daniel and Nina Carasso Foundation.
