about us

The future of humanity transcends the boundaries of Earth and beyond

Beyond Earth is an international multidisciplinary project and exhibition series that expands the possibility of art on Earth and beyond. By linking art, space, life, and science, we build global awareness of our home planet and explore creativity in the far reaches of outer space. We believe that the future of humanity transcends the boundaries of Earth and beyond. Our global initiatives allow individuals, corporations, and organizations to connect and explore together — expanding our notion of space and our mother planet.

Space Art DNA Time Capsule

Space Art DNA Time Capsule serves as the Pioneer Plaque of the 21st Century, featuring crowd-sourced drawings created by individuals from around the world. Drawn images represent a visual message to space, reflecting life on Earth and our collective role as Citizens of the Future. This vast collection of drawings is encoded into DNA, nature’s oldest and most resilient storage device. The DNA is encased in a minuscule, lightweight capsule built for spaceflight. Space Art DNA Time Capsule will be launched to Low Earth Orbit aboard a rocket or satellite by 2023. This is our Earth’s record of life to reflect present day and communicate to future generations.

Project Directors: Richelle Gribble, Yoko Shimizu, Elena Soterakis(Beyond Earth)
Collaborators: Sasha Simochina (NASA Jet Propulsion Lab), Yaniv Elrich (MyHeritage), Beth Tuck (Genspace)

Space and art are the ultimate expressions of human curiosity, providing incentive for exploration since the beginning of history, and probably long before

Space Art Traveling Exhibition

Current Exhibition
SUPERCOLLIDER - The Beacon Arts Building - Los Angeles, USA

The Beacon Arts Building
2020 Jan 18 – Mar 08

The Nook relaunches in 2020 with a new name—SUPERCOLLIDER— a science inspired platform, presenting A Message to Space, a multimedia exhibition of outer space themed artworks. Demonstrating a diverse and inclusive history and phenomenology of aerospace studies, the exhibition includes the Space Art DNA Time Capsule, an art project for which gallery visitors can create drawings that will then be stored on synthetic DNA and flown to outer space in 2023.

Artworks etched onto satellites, artworks created by astronauts, and art about space by technocurious creators, present the pursuit to understand life on earth and beyond as not so distinct from the artist’s quest to understand life’s meaning.

Featured artists include Richelle Gribble, Nicole Stott (astronaut), Sheila Pinkel, Forest Stearns, Nina Waisman, Memo Akten, Rachelle Reichert, Cara Levine, Yoko Shimizu, Elena Soterakis, Isabel Beavers, Janna Avner, Christina Ondrus, Ben Vance, Robert Simmon, Charles Sommer, James P. Scott, Stan Kazanjian, Jeff Gipe, Tiare Ribeaux, Alan Chin, MoonArk (team), and Beyond Earth (team).
