This event is presented as part of SpaceShip Earth, artist Dafna Talmor's residency at Beaconsfield.

Inspired by R. Buckminster Fuller’s urgent predictions about our ‘Spaceship Earth’ and a chance encounter with a man obsessed by a government plan to relocate to the moon, SpaceShip Earth takes flight. The project references a hybrid of utopian models and aspirations and looks at the contradictions, limitations and inevitable ‘failures’ that accompany utopian dreams.

Over four weeks, Dafna Talmor will utilise Beaconsfield as centre for recycling, production and community workshops – a training ground for a better world elsewhere – and a specially designed eco-structure will be built in the Gallery Yard in collaboration with Mark Pavey. The documentation of these activities will form the basis of Talmor’s TestBed film commission.
