NASA LIE THE EARTH IS FLAT NO CURVE is a 30 minute, moving-image collage, made entirely from footage widely available from online video-media platforms.
It is a playful and poetic video which invites you to consider the broad social and political predicaments we currently inhabit, via the specific lens of the growing ‘Flat Earth’ phenomenon.
The themes touched upon include individualism, democracy, identity, social isolation, truth decay and conspiracy theory – but there are many jokes too. Look out for them!
Following the screening their will be time for a discussion regarding many of these themes, led by the artist, Andrew Wilson.
Andrew Wilson (b.1982) is an artist based in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. He is a studio holder at The NewBridge Project, an initiator of We Are Our Media – an independent / do-it-ourselves approach to journalism, and he often collaborates with artist Toby Lloyd as Lloyd-Wilson.
NASA LIE THE EARTH IS FLAT NO CURVE was created whilst undertaking an artist residency at ZK/U – Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistik, Berlin, in 2019. The residency was a co-commission between The NewBridge Project (UK), ZK/U (Germany) and PUrSI a Durham Universitiy project researching the Politics of Urban Social Innovation (UK).
