Description

The Lithuanian Space Agency (LSA) is an organisation for research into space architecture and gravitational aesthetics. It is an astro-disciplinary initiative—founded by Julijonas Urbonas—that aims to advance an extraterrestrial imagination. In Venice, the agency presents Urbonas’ most recent project Planet of People. Instead of sending humans to colonise other planets, what if we catapulted them into empty space to form a new planet from their bodies – a planet of people? Planet of People uses a 3D scanner to scan the participants of the experiment and ‘send’ them into space as animated simulations. As more and more people participate over the course of the trial run in Venice, the scanned bodies begin to form an extraterrestrial planet. Planet of People is a project that raises questions about our current and future life on Earth and beyond.

Biennale Sneak Peek

Image 1 – How will we live together?
Imagine you are one of the gravitating bodies catapulted into space to form a new planet – a planet of people where a body connects with a body in a strange choreography. Maybe that’s how we will live and create architecture together?
