Margeaux Ljungberg joins the Wearable Art Production Team again to guide our spaceships into new frontiers. Read more about her vision for Wearable Art 2021: Intergalactic below.
What a year it has been since we last gathered together as models, artists, volunteers, collaborators and audience members. We can all agree that this past year has been exhausting, sometimes sad, and often frustrating. However, your Wearable Art team has been hard at work reimagining this Community Extravaganza, and I am so excited to welcome you to Wearable Art 2021: Intergalactic – live stream edition. How fortuitous that a year ago our community chose a theme that would send us into space? I, for one, am completely ready to ditch this “frakking” popsicle stand, climb aboard the Starship JAHC and blast off. More than 50 years after Neil Armstrong took his first step on the moon, space continues to fascinate and inspire us. As artists, we can imagine the unlimited possibilities of space, which in turn allows us to reflect back on our own humanity, our fear of the unknown, and our hope for the future. Together, we will speed through the stars on an intergalactic space mission to discover new worlds. Through the science of your residential holodeck (aka television) we shall engage with new alien races and Artificial Intelligence. Each evening our intrepid artists will use the force and beam themselves into your homes, and guided by our dedicated crew on the bridge, we will venture into space – Wearable Arts’ next frontier.
