Matt Martin: the kessler syndrome

Matt Martin: the kessler syndrome - kessler 7.0
Saturday, October 10, 2015 to Sunday, November 1, 2015

The Kessler Syndrome is a scenario in which the high density of space debris orbiting Earth creates the possibility that a single collision between objects could cause an infinite cascade of collisions, rendering space exploration and the use of satellites unfeasible. The work in this series is comprised of castings of older work, grafts and agglutinations of wood, paint, and acrylic mediums; processes centered around a comparison to the hyperobjectivity of orbital debris.
