Amateur Astronaut

No Longer Available

Amateur Astronaut, 2020 is a performative photograph from my series To Visit the Moon, where I created a hypothetical expedition past Earth’s atmosphere. This project spans multiple mediums, which allowed me to research and plan an impossible mission into cosmic space. The roof of my parents’ house became a place where I could theorize this mission. I couldn’t leave per se, but I could look into this unknown, uncharted, socially weightless environment that was outer space. My longing to leave and human desire to explore the unknown pushed me to create this project. I would be an openly queer person, with absolutely no aerospace background, in space.
