LIFE, ON MARS

We would like artists of any discipline and any age to address, as broadly as they wish, the idea of a future life on Mars. With SpaceX and Elon Musk striving to create a human habitat on Mars, the possibility of what was previously science-fiction cinema, may become a reality within our lifetimes. Whether artists seek to address the geography of the planet, how humans will breath or create food, the computer technology or space travel as a whole are just a few ideas.
