Space Control by Ruben Wätte

SPACE CONTROL, 2011, 2:45 min

Somewhere in the woods, an automatic feeder is transformed into a rocket ship and a hunting tower into the control station. A rocket takes off from Earth in the service of humanity. In Space Control different aspirations compete for control over “space”, whether it be outer space, the forest, or the urban environment. Social constructions such as recreation, art, and ownership are temporarily put on hold when their boundaries are ignored.
