Having viewed a teaser into the Nike x Tom Sachs space camp, the SPACE PROGRAM: Mars has finally been unveiled. The installation’s been created by Sachs and his thirteen strong studio team, and they wear the Tom Sachs NIKECraft collection to man the installation, regularly demonstrating the myriad procedures, rituals, and tasks of their mission in the SPACE PROGRAM: Mars. It’s a demonstration of all that is necessary for survival, scientific exploration, and colonization in extraterrestrial environs: from food delivery systems and entertainment to agriculture and human waste disposal.
The joint venture between Tom and the Nike design team fuses, in several significant ways, the design sensibility Sachs brings to space travel in this four week mission to Mars. It repurposes 55,000 square feet of the Wade Thompson Drill Hall at the Park Avenue Armory, New York with an installation of dynamic and meticulously crafted sculptures, which is open to the public at the Park Avenue Armory from now until June 17th. To add, the Tom Sachs NIKECraft collection will be sold alongside signature Sachs memorabilia within a pop installation adjoining the exhibition.
