Venture to new heights.
SUPERCOLLIDER is proud to present the Space for Humanity Artist Residency, a space + art virtual residency linking artists and space professionals to develop collaborative projects together. Selected participants will be coupled to explore their shared interests in space science. The primary goal of this residency is to explore the frontiers of space and art through creative inquiry and artistic expression.
This residency links artists with Space For Humanity, to encourage more participation and collaboration in space. Space for Humanity’s mission is to expand access to space, train our leaders of tomorrow, and cultivate a movement towards a more harmonious world. Application closed.

The SUPERCOLLIDER x Space for Humanity Virtual Residency wrapped up at the end of 2021. Our resident artist and scientist pairs explored intersections in space and artistic research, utilizing space for humanity’s mission of ‘making space for everybody’ as a point of inspiration to consider equitable ways of existing in space and on other planets. The teams collaborated over the course of our 6 week virtual residency and participated in dialogue with guest artists and scientists including NASA/JPL Engineer David Jefferson; Kosmica Institute; and artist Erika Blumenfeld.
The teams generated project ideas that explored their shared interests and practices and presented their projects during our final presentation with guest artists and scientists returning to join the group. Their projects explored topics as wide ranging as plants on the planet Mars, human bodies in the lava tubes of Mars, the ubiquity of plastics on our home planet and others, and well as the embodied experience of space radiation. We are so inspired by the collaboration, collective thinking, and ingenuity of our resident artist and scientists.
