Everybody’s going to space – well, not everybody. Over 8 billion of us remain on our miraculous and endangered planet. Figments: Memories of Earth explores the space race through the lens of climate change, science fiction, and current space technology. Using NASA/JPL and historical sources interwoven with her own photographic constructions, artist/writer Judith James proposes an imaginative and inclusive response to the tension between our ancient yearning for the stars and our neglect of Earth.
