So far, almost all space programs have been led by governments, usually as part of their military programs. Very seldom were these initiatives developed by amateurs. After three years of research and one year of experience as a satellite engineer, Song Hojun has found that it is possible to launch and operate a personal satellite at a fairly reasonable price. In addition, he has for the past five years been exploring ways to integrate the concept of a personal satellite project into cultural contexts and into his artistic practice.
All the satellite-related systems (except for the rocket to launch it) are DIY programs –- designed so that regular people may also have the chance of developing and eventually launching their own.
Join us (last minute!) this Sunday April 25th at 5pm for a presentation by Song, who will have his satellite with him for showing.
For the people who want to study more before they come, they can download Song’s book from Google Books here: http://bit.ly/diEUDa

Thanks to Team Banksy for the very entertaining evening. "Exit Through The Gift Shop", Banksy's first foray in feature length entertainment, left me mulling the authenticity of artist/filmmaker Thierry Guetta aka Mr. Brainwash and discussing the commodification of art with friends for days. I thoroughly enjoyed the comedic nature of the film, the archival footage, especially the clip with a young Shepard Fairey and his wife Amanda at Kinko's, and the peek behind the street art curtain.
A great follow up to Banksy's 2006 LA-art coup, "Barely
Legal", "Exit Through The Gift Shop" left me wanting to see more. For those that can read the writing on the wall, I think this art project is a laugh at or laugh with set up. Which camp are you in?
