Space-inspired Star Storm to premiere next month
Paris (ESA) Sep 01, 2017
Star Storm, an explosive performance inspired by stellar processes in the Universe, will be premiered at the 2017 Ars Electronica Festival in Linz, Austria, on 10 September. The creator of the show is Aoife van Linden Tol, the recipient of the first art and science@ESA residency organised by Ars Electronica in partnership with ESA. A multimedia artist working primarily with explosive materials, Aoife spent six weeks at ESA's technical heart in the Netherlands to research her project. D ... read more
