Astronaut considers space exploration from the perspective of the astronaut and represents an aspect of that experience. Featuring artists Adam Norton, Tony Albert, David Haines and Joyce Hinterding, Darren Sylvester, Mog&Mog and Chris Caines, the works combine the history and science of space travel with creative imaginings of exploring new territories.
