“Star Voyager - Exploring Space on Screen” explores the relationship between space exploration and its representation on screen.

Our design of the display of this large collection of objects and footage draws explicitly from the motifs of space.

A project room is clad in Lunar Landing Module gold foil, a series of smaller objects are displayed in an 'asteroid belt', a series of films and objects are arranged in a false perspective space corridor and a collection of space suits is choreographed to mimic a famous scene from film on the space race.

The exhibition features early 20th century films on space exploration, a camera that has actually been on the moon, a series of commissioned and curated artworks about space, a collection of space suits, books, images, record covers, a 3d interactive tour acros the surface of mars and a terrarium for the production of oxygen.

Curated by Sarah Tutton and Emma McRae of ACMI 'Star Voyager' was launched at ACMI on 21st of September 2011 to a full house by astronaut Rex Walheim and remained open between 21st September 2011 and 29th January 2012.
