Ultra Space: Terra Cosma

Does space exploration always have to involve shiny white orbs? How can we open up the conversation and connect it back to life on earth? To explore these questions and more, a group of artists, designers, and researchers collaboratively create the Terra Cosma Suit and take it on a zero-gravity flight.

Ultra Space: Terra Cosma was awarded Best Documentary at the 2023 Experimental Dance & Music Film Festival.
