Human Ongoing Mission of Existence
ma tu mi ami but you love me
In the Human Ongoing Mission for Existence, Robert Long becomes Astronaut Scientist - your guide to a parallel universe. Through his research, Astronaut Scientist is straddling the boundary between fantasy and reality, creating a world that relies on the in-between space. Working with found materials and inspired by the imaginary play of children, he cobbles together objects that resemble things found in the real world. The exhibition space becomes the first step in coaxing the viewer into a realm of suspended disbelief in order to facilitate a journey into another world, and opening the viewer up to any possibility.
