The Cosmic Debris Residency calls for 3 collaborators from any artistic or scientific background to create an immersive exhibition or experience for SpaceFest. Now in its 4th year, the exhibition will be situated in the round room, under the National Space Centre’s iconic 32-metre Big Dish. The residency is an opportunity to respond to the issue of space debris, or defunct human-made objects in space which no longer serve a useful function. The US Space Surveillance Network reported 25,857 artificial objects in orbit above the Earth in 2022, including 5,465 operational satellites. Collaborators might wish to explore the impact of dead spacecraft left in orbit, the regulation of outer space, and humanity’s impact on the universe. We also invite the wonder of the cosmos and inspiration of the night sky into the creative process! Applicants are encouraged to explore innovative ways to engage visitors through interactive installations, multimedia experiences, and immersive storytelling. Past projects have made use of the numerous screens in the round room, and have included interactive sculpture, video installations and an immersive dance performance.
