Installation is staged as an experience of a space adventure. The lector carries you through the experience step by step, gradually unfolding a poem of the space journey visualized in an instructional animation guiding viewer imagination. The work was inspired by the object created along with the excitement of the space race, the Saturnas, 60’s vacuum-cleaner of the USSR, cosmic exploration propaganda, a planet-hoover.
The work intends to dive into today's desires of exploration, arising from the inherent drive at the heart of the human imagination. Installation offers an experience of letting Kärcher a vacuum cleaner to be ejected into a deep space, the mission expanding human presence beyond earth.
The hoover represents domestic fantasy state of the glorification of consuming objects and technology.
