Very Very Far Away will be LIVE this weekend, September 23rd and 24th, at the seventh annual Digital Design Weekend at Victoria and Albert Museum in London. This special VVFA performance and workshop will be the first installment in the Sightseer Project, a speculation about a space tether anchored on an artificial island in the Pacific.
Over the course of the weekend, VVFA will set up as a pop-up radio station broadcasting in-person interviews (Garnet Hertz, David Benqué, Joseph Popper), playing back episodes from VVFA podcasts, conducting performances with members of the audience and presenting improvised music by WORMS and other space-themed musical selections.
Very Very Far Away (VVFA) is a public facing research project consisting of a podcast, a workshop and a series of special projects, seeking to re-ignite future ideologies. Its method uses Space Exploration as a lens to examine current ideas and values which may pertain to future societies through technological advances.
