The SKY|SPACE Art Project is inspired by three of the simple and profound lessons we’ve learned from Space exploration:

We Live on a Planet;

We are all Earthlings;

and the Only Border that Matters is the Thin Blue Line of atmosphere that Protects us All.

Children in refugee centers, hospitals, and schools in over 35 countries around the world shared their own personal connection to our Sky and Space through their artwork.

 

With the creative talent of ABlok, their drawings and stories came to life together as one collective interactive video art piece.

 

The project is dedicated to the work of our friends at Sky Day Project and Sky Day 2019.

 

In September 2019 SKY|SPACE was showcased as part of our fundraising event at the White Porch Gallery in Miami. 

All of the children's artwork was transformed by ABlok into stars. When you stand in front of the screen, your body is make up of all these little stars. Then countdown to receive a picture of yourself as stars floating in space.
