Beyond the Cradle 2018: Envisioning a New Space Age
Space will be hackable. Space will be playful. Space grows ever more accessible to the space enthusiast—through the reach of DIY instruments, experiments, sensors and satellites, and soon through a new age of space tourism and exploration. This opportunity to design our interplanetary lives beckons to us.
Join us at the MIT Media Lab on March 10, 2018 as we envision, design, hack, and build our space future! We'll hear from industry leaders in "New Space"; titans of the great satellite and probe missions; innovation engineers from NASA, ESA, JAXA, and India's SRO; sci-fi's greatest minds; Hollywood imagineers; and of course—astronauts!
The Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) announces the Winter 2018 session of its Artist Studios Program and Van Lier Fellowship. The selected artists, who will work in MAD’s sixth-floor open studios from January 30, 2018, through May 27, 2018, are Andrew Bearnot, Esperanza Cortés, Katya Grokhovsky, Dana Melamed, Emily Oliveira, Emiko Shinozaki, and Van Lier Fellow Xin Liu.
Mixing scientific research with personal narratives, Xin Liu creates transformative, participatory experiences and bodily objects to examine the constitution of subjectivity and affects. She trained as an engineer for two decades, and technology functions as her native language and craft within her art practice.
As a Van Lier Fellow at MAD, Liu will continue a project about living and dying in space. She is organizing a performance in outer space, turning earthly bodies into star matter. During her residency, she will design a series of tools and procedures for collecting, cremating, and casing the earth organism and living experiences.

Following its successful premiere at Ars Electronica Festival 2014, and subsequent inspirational editions in 2015 and 2016, the Future Innovators Summit (FIS) has established itself as a dynamic think-tank and key program within Ars Electronica Festival. Now in its fourth year, Future Innovators from different cultures and backgrounds and from different fields such as artists, designers, scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, social activists and philosophers will gather in September in Linz to explore new ways of collective brainstorming and creative prototyping on the crucial questions of the future.
I am selected to join the Future Innovators Summit this year during Ars Electronica. Look forward to seeing everyone in Linz.
