ISSS Alongside NASA “A Human Adventure”

ISSS (Indonesia Space Science Society) presented by Venzha Christ and v.u.f.o.c team,  get a chance to exhibit along with NASA “A Human Adventure” Exhibition in Art Science Museum, Marina Bay Sand, Singapore.

Working with artists, scientists, astronomers and engineers in Indonesia, Venzha established Indonesia Space Science Society as a framework for the exploration of space from a different perspective. Whilst lacking the means that large space agencies such as NASA have, the Indonesia Space Science Society provides us with a compelling encounter with space nonetheless.

The art installation at ArtScience Museum results from the science of radio astronomy. The installation presents radio waves from space, sent and collected through self-made radio antennas gathering precise data from astronomical objects in space. The transmitted signals received from the planets and stars are then visually displayed and decoded into audible sounds which constitute the soundscape present in this gallery. Radio waves, together with light waves, have changed the way we view the Universe and dramatically increased our knowledge of it.

The Indonesia Space Science Society shows us that that space is a continuous source of inspiration that compels practitioners from all fields to understand the universe we are within, using both tools and ideas of science, and those of art.

Mini Museum of Utsuro-bune

Venzha Christ’s (co-founder of v.u.f.o.c from HONF Foundation) fascination with the universe and space science has driven him to produce a variety of works and to initiate events including international SETI (Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence) symposiums.

For KENPOKU ART 2016, Venzha researched “Utsuro-bune (hollow ship)”, a mysterious vessel, which drifted on the shore of lbaraki during the Edo period (1803). The folklore has been recorded that a foreign woman appeared from the vessel covered with indecipherable Letters, and moreover in the paleography, the boat was depicted in the form of a UFO. To identify Utsuro-Bune, the artist used archives as well as interviewed the Local residents who have witnessed UFOs. What Venzha created are three destinations of the imagination in the history of Utsuro-Bune.

This Mini Museum of Utsuro-Bune has been produced by deep conversations and collaborative research with many experts in space science, astrophysics, extra-terrestrial life, science fiction, history, and also practitioners from many institutions. This year he just Launched a new institution called: ISSS – Indonesia Space Science Society. He dedicates himself to research projects in the field of space exploration, extraterrestrial life and ancient technology through the particular platform of v.u.f.o.c.


C6H12O6 + 6 O2

Abstract & Concept

Indonesia has important roles as one big world lung with its tropical plants and forests that contributes world largest O2. Therefore, Indonesian society as part of world society play important part to keep world nature heritage of life sustainability for the next generation. Plants need a photosynthesis process to produce O2 where hotosynthesis are very complex process and it need physical, chemical and biological process itself. Photosynthesis has equivalent of 6CO2 + 12 H2O + light energy —> C6H12O6 + 6O2 + 6H2O.

This work is a hypothesis of research that being done through scientific process. Science combined with other cross disciplines such as arts, technology and design which create an innovative art/work aimed to be useful for any disciplines.

The work of C6H12O6 + O2 uses photosynthesis process of bacterias and plants arround us. Photosynthesis process that happened on earth showed on culture medium and can be seen directly through bacterias’ phototroph that produce pigments. The photosynthesis are digitally generated to be converted as datas, sound and visualization that can be seen and heard. This art/work aimed to elevate people awareness on how important to keep the nature from any polutions.
