«Reflect – Space» is a trans-active performance sculpture by the team of Andrea Stanislav and Dean Lozow. The performance’s sculpture garments are made from handmade mirrored pin-buttons and digital portrait photography. The performance was created to migrate and it continues to travel globally. It has been performed throughout Russia, the United States and Finland…and now moves forward during the Space Week at the Museum of Cosmonautics in Moscow.
An interactive sculpture with two performers will walk traversing the grounds of the Museum of Cosmonantics, the Academician Sergei Korolev House Museum and other space locations in the area, until their wearable sculptures are diminished by giving away the mirrored buttons (one at a time) to the public. The buttons are given in trade for each individuals’ photograph and a recorded answer to a question about space travel and migration that is asked by the performers.
Then, the walk is performed again, with the transformed sculpture garments covered in hundreds of black and white portraits of all those who interacted with the work.
The second performance walk is also accompanied by an audio remix of the publics recorded answers to the space travel and migration question asked of them — reassembling the community and their thoughts on space travel and migration onto the wearable sculpture. The public performance will occur at scheduled times from October 6 to October 9. The final version of the sculpture garments covered in portraits will be given to the Museum of Cosmonautics as a gift.
