About the Project

Welcome to the Time Capsules to Space Festival – where artists from all walks of life are invited to create performances dedicated to the cosmos.  Broadcast to space using a custom-built antenna, these performances, or virtual time capsules, are sent into space with the hopes of transmitting interplanetary/interdimensional understanding and to inspire a deeper human appreciation of Earth’s relationship to the greater cosmic landscape.

Time Capsules to Space is an artistic and sociological collection of human interpretations of life on Earth and the messages we are hoping to send.  What would people send off to space given the opportunity? Being one of the first artistic/civilian efforts of its kind, the Festival is also greatly inspired by the 1977 Launch of the Voyager Golden Record. It is in the hopes that by asking us to look outwardly, the Festival encourages a kind of thinking that puts human beings in alignment with our unique place to our surroundings.

Time Capsules To Space is conceptualized and curated by Zarah Cabañas of Firefly Lab.
