2018 Festival Event:

The Golden Record

The Hereafter Artist Collective, Flight of Swallows, and Georgia Tech faculty are collaborating to bring performance art to the Atlanta Science Festival. Forty years ago, Carl Sagan arranged to send The Golden Record into space as a part of the Voyager Mission. The Golden Record, two phonograph records full of sounds and images, serves as a time capsule for future life forms to one day look back upon our existence. Under the direction of the Hereafter Artist Collective, this performance piece incorporates aerial arts, modern dance, and live music to explore the themes of this “time capsule” and how humanity may appear to those lifeforms. Will humanity be but a fairytale and The Golden Record just a beautiful moment when we reached to the stars looking to “join a community of galactic civilizations”?
Note: There is an earlier performance of this event at 3:00 p.m.

Presented by The Hereafter Artist Collective, Flight of Swallows, Georgia Institute of Technology
