Columbia
by the People's Elbow
29 August - 3 September 2003

Columbia was the exhibition of the making of a movie about the NASA space shuttle of the same name, which disintegrated on its re-entry into Earth's atmosphere in early 2003. A screenplay was written and film sets built ready to make a Hollywood style space movie in just five days and with no budget. Visitors to the gallery were given space suits and a mix of gung-ho and philosophical lines, or were utilized as camera or boom mic ops, on a fully operational film set. The footage was edited during the five day process. On the final and opening night of the show, the final scene was shot and Ground Control, Houston, was utilized as a makeshift cinema.
