LIFE ON MARS: FICTIONAL FILM SETS

New Design University (NDU) St. Pölten

30.9.–8.10.2016

2016: A Space Odyssey. Or: How do students of interior architecture imagine life on the red planet? This is what visitors to the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK found out by virtually being lifted off and launched to Mars. Six rooms made of the simplest material like cardboard and paper serving at the same time as film set for a short video invited people to a short sojourn on the Mars of pop culture. Sleep modules, robot devices, and a control center all-inclusive, of course. It goes
without saying that they were part of the fictional space habitat. Visitors were also invited to a workshop where they made DIY props like space suits or helmets. Meanwhile, science fiction films provided a source of inspiration for the spatial and visual narratives.
