Moon Gallery to ISS


My artwork “Vanishing Point” as a part of the Moon Gallery flies to the International Space Station aboard the NG-17 rocket on 19 February of 2022, from Wallops Island Virginia. This edition of the Moon gallery 8×8 grid features 1 cm3 cells housing 64 physical artifacts and one engraved AR artwork. The art projects featured in the gallery will reach the final frontier of human habitat and mark the historical meeting point of the Moon Gallery and the cosmos.

The launch is scheduled for 12:39 EST, 17:39 UTC.
Check the official NASA website for live streaming of the launch.

The Moon Gallery installation will remain at the ISS till the end of the 2022.

My project “Vanishing point” is about the fundamental concept of perspective representation. As a part of the Moon Gallery the “Vanishing Point” represents in Space the essence of human spatial perception: at the ISS, reaching low Earth orbit, and eventually at the Moon surface.

Spatial Exploration Through Line

Welcome to the opening of my murals on Friday February 28 at 6 pm at the Arcade Contemporary Art Projects gallery, St. Louis, Missouri, USA. Live digital drawing with live jazz music at 7 pm.

Alexandra Arshanskaya’s study reconditions the venerable interior storefront window cases of the Historic Arcade Building as the home for her considerations of the concept of spatial perception as closely associated with time, manifest as murals. She explores the space as movement in time. To give shape to this aspect of “experienced” space, Alexandra expands her art practice with live performances. Live music broadens the experience of space and time for the audience. Picture, sound and space together become one single act.
