Come retrace the footsteps of the first humans on the moon – peer through their mirror-glazed visors, hear your soul rattle while hurtling across the stars, and plummet into the zen stillness of the lunar void.
Featuring two exhilarating VR artworks – 1st Step - From Earth to the Moon and 2nd Step - From the Moon to Mars and Beyond which both debuted at the first-ever Expanded section of the Venice Film Festival in 2020, these works were painstakingly moulded using exclusive archival footage and recordings from NASA on the Apollo missions, Spacewalkers celebrates humanity's limitless quest into the unknown through the eyes of those who made it there and back - and through those who would turn what ifs into reality.
