I created this animation for Deep Trash From Outer Space! in October 2016. Produced by queer non-profit CUNTemporary, Deep Trash was a ONE NIGHT ONLY exhibition-cum-performance-club-night featuring live performances, installations, artworks, visuals, videos and short films spread over 3 floors by over 40 artists in East London’s Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club.
You can watch a video of that happened that night here.
STS-XX ~ ‘We don’t study sexuality in space, and we don’t have any studies ongoing with that.’ - Bill Jeffs, NASA
In 2000 an article was widely circulated reporting that the Russian Space Agency and NASA were engaging in a joint top secret program to research and test the logistics of human reproduction in space, codenamed ‘STS-XX’.
This film imagines how this research might have gone – in felt tips. Joel Neale did the sound.
