Space Center Performance - 1983

In 1983 I was granted a residency at the Space Center in Alamagordo, NM near White Sands. My project was to create a multi-media performance in the planetarium dome using lasers, videos in a bank, a talking computer, and an electronic keyboard. The theme was space or related to manned space exploration, as interpreted by an artist. In these photos you see components of the performance and this first image shows the heavens projected on the dome as I (in the white light area) work with the computer speech while a video of a shuttle plays in the background. The following image shows me at the keyboard followed by images of the video. The technical script is included.

Look how old the computer equipment looks!
