Immersive Art Exhibit Shows Glimpses of Cassini’s Long History

Last Friday marked the end of an era for NASA. NASA’s Cassini spacecraft made its final plunge into Saturn’s atmosphere in the early hours of the day.

After 13 years of its exploration of the Saturn system, its mission finally ended. In conjunction with the end of this scientific milestone, WOW Inc. and hpgrp Gallery New York celebrated the opening of BEYOND CASSINI, an immersive installation that displays visuals that flash through time, giving viewers glimpses of the satellite’s life.

The installation was created and directed by Tyler Bowers of WOW Inc., in collaboration with NYC-based artist Gabriel Pulecio, along with executive producer Erica Bernhard of COVALENTartists.

The exhibit features background information on the NASA mission and the project, but main attraction is the mirrored infinity room, which features LED infinity mirror techniques that plays with “bending the perception of space and time.” You can look up, down and all around inside this 2-minute immersive experience.

You can check out the exhibit yourself at hpgrp Gallery New York (434 Greenwich St.) now through September 27th during the hours of 11am-6pm (the gallery is closed on Sunday and Monday).
